Safeguarding Children

Safeguarding & Child Protection
Diogelu ac Amddiffyn Plant

Safeguarding and Child Protection are key priorities for Severn Primary School.  We aim to support vulnerable children to ensure they are as safe as they can possibly be.  Our school is committed to ensuring the safety and protection of all children and will take action to safeguard their well-being. We acknowledge that children have a right to protection and this is supported in the general ethos of our school. 

The school's policy applies to the whole of the school's workforce, along with volunteers, governors and any contractors working on the school site. In particular Staff recruitment and selection - ensuring that all staff (volunteers etc.) have been appropriately DBS checked for their suitability, using the Safe Recruitment procedures.

We work in partnership with outside agencies to safeguard children.


When there are concerns it may be necessary to make a referral to Children’s services.


At Severn Primary School we have a comprehensive safeguarding/child protection policy. All staff undertake safeguarding training that equips them to recognise and respond to child welfare concerns.


These concerns are then passed to the:


Designated Child Protection Officer: Mr Nick Wilson (Head Teacher)


or in his absence


Deputy Designated Child Protection Officer:  Mr Andrew Jones (Deputy Head Teacher)

They follow strict guidelines on how to deal with any concerns as set out in the All Wales Child Protection Procedures.


The nominated Governor for Child Protection is: Mr Gareth Jones (Chair of Governors)
