The safeguarding of all children in school is a top priority for the adults at Newlands.  The school follows all of the correct procedures for the recruitment of staff and has clear guidelines for volunteers working in school.  All adults visiting and working in the school are required to sign in and badges are worn at all times.  Our Business Manager (Ms Maginn) ensures all of the necessary checks have been carried out and keeps a clear record of these. All adults in school have regular safeguarding training delivered by the Designated Safeguarding Lead (Miss Hawke)

Our safeguarding team is made up of the following members of staff:

  • Mrs Prince (Head Teacher)
  • Miss Hawke (Deputy Head Teacher – Designated Safeguarding Lead)
  • Mrs Greendale (Learning Mentor – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead)
  • Mrs Benson (Lead Teacher Communication Resource – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead)
  • Ms G Alderson- Safeguarding Administrator
  • Mrs T Hollies- Governor for Safeguarding
