Safeguarding

Safeguarding is Everyone's Responsibility!

If you have any concerns about a child within our school you should share this information with a member of our staff immediately. The named people below are the people you should talk to, however if they are unavailable, please ask to speak to the most senior member of staff available. If you have any concerns, please e-mail admin@cubitttown-jun.towerhamlets.sch.uk

At Cubitt Town Primary School, the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our paramount concern. We have a duty of care for all the children who attend our school. We listen to our pupils and we take seriously what they tell us. As a result of this, there may be times we have to consult with other agencies as well as yourselves. Although we strive to work in partnership with you to help your child achieve well and be prepared for the next stage in their education and adult life, there may be exceptions to this, when concerns are raised, for the protection of your child.

We promote a culture of Safeguarding is Everyone's Responsibility in our school. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers, has a role to play in safeguarding. In order to fulfil this effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
