Safeguarding

St Luke’s C.E. Primary School is strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and those within our local community to share this commitment. We ensure, through establishing a culture of vigilance, that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

The Designated Safeguarding Leader is Rachel Harvey. 

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leaders are: Rebecca Abrahams, Executive Head teacher and Christine Collins, our Community Cohesion Leader.

To complement and enhance the work of our Designated Safeguarding Leader and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leaders we have a Safeguarding Team. This team includes:

  • Lizzie Lewis, our SENCO

  • Fiona Treasure, our Psychological Therapist

  • Absana Begum, our Safeguarding Administrator

School policies in relation to Safeguarding can be found under 'About Us' and in the Policies section.

First aid and allergies

At St Luke's, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all children with medical and allergy needs are accommodated fully in school. Staff are trained to work with children who have medical and allergy needs and work alongside​ and in partnership with parents and outside medical professionals. All information is updated regularly and training needs of staff are always met.

Support for families experiencing domestic violence

With the recent pandemic and lockdowns, incidents of domestic abuse have sadly become increasingly common across the UK. 

With the safety and welfare of all our families in mind, we are sharing with you government domestic abuse guidance in Bengali, Somali, Mandarin and other languages. 

These links explain how to recognise and report domestic abuse and where support can be accessed for victims and perpetrators. 

If you have any concerns about the situation of yourself or others, please do not hesitate to read and follow the advice provided. 

Keep well and take good care of yourselves.
