Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with Parents/Carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child, please contact the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr A. Buckeridge (Headteacher); or the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads; Mrs C. Jackson (Deputy Headteacher), Mrs D. Smith (SENDCo).
Our Governors responsible for Safeguarding are Julie Servaes and Etelka Moon.
East-the-Water Primary School, in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police, are part of Operation Encompass, an early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.
Operation Encompass means that the police will share information about Domestic Abuse incidents with our school, prior to the start of the next school day, when they have been called to a domestic incident.
