At Old Town Infant School and Nursery we recognise that for children, high self-esteem, confidence, supportive friends and clear lines of communication with a trusted adult helps prevent the chances of them being abused. Our school will therefore aim to:
Our first concern is your child's welfare and we will usually discuss any concerns we might have about your child with you.
However, there might be occasions when we need to consult or provide information for other agencies such as Children's Social Care before we contact you. Our responsibility to do so is determined by the Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole inter-agency Child Protection Procedures.
There is a link supplied on this page with more details.
Our school is part of Operation Encompass. This is a police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.
