Safeguarding – Site Specific Arrangements
At Rushden Primary Academy we take safeguarding very seriously. All staff and volunteers undergo annual safeguarding training, and all visitors to the school are given a short information leaflet outlining what they should do if they have any concerns about a child.
Our Safeguarding Team are:
Liza Davies - Principal and Designated Safeguard Lead (DSL)
Lindsay Edwards - Deputy Principal and Deputy Safeguard Lead
Debs Francis - Family Support Worker and Deputy Safeguard Lead
Helen Mallett - SENCo and Deputy Safeguard Lead
Please see below for details of our Site Specific Safeguarding Arrangements and our Safeguarding Information for Volunteers and Visitors.

Safeguarding during the Covid-19 pandemic
Amid the Covid 19 pandemic, supporting the wellbeing of children has never been so important. To this end, SSS Learning have produced a free Safeguarding Children 10 Top Tips Parent Resource designed to offer advice on how parents can safeguard their child/ren's mental health and promote their wellbeing. It is available as both a document and a short video presentation.
The link to both resources is here: https://ssscpd.co.uk/education/parentsandguardians/child-mental-health-10-tips-for-parents/-/pj==
