Safeguarding at Shavington
We are very conscious of the responsibility we have for the children whilst they are in our charge and provide the care that any responsible parent would provide. The children are supervised at playtimes and dinnertimes and movement around the school is kept as calm as possible.
It is vital that we have up to date emergency contact numbers for every child. If you do have any change of details then please let the office know as soon as possible. At the beginning of each academic year a new contact form is sent home for parents to complete. We then use this to update all our systems in school.
Because of the day to day contact with children, schools are particularly well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in behaviour or failure to thrive or progress. Parents should be aware, therefore, that where it appears to a member of staff that a child may have been neglected or abused, the school is required, as part of the Cheshire Child Protection procedures, to report their concerns to the ChECS team (Cheshire East Consultation Service).
