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

Sophie Parker - Deputy Safeguard Lead

Jen Pursell - Deputy Safeguard Lead

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:
