Lyminster Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The School expects all staff, pupils, governors and volunteers to share this commitment. Everyone has the right to feel safe and be safe in our school regardless of age, culture, disability, gender, language racial origin, religious belief and/or sexual identity. We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. Our Child Protection Policy is available in the ‘policies’ section of the school website.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy.
If you have any concerns about any child in the school, please speak to either:
- Mrs Gemma Terrill, Designated Safeguarding Lead
- Mr Steve McGinley, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Mrs Cheryl Williams.
Individuals may report safeguarding concerns directly to the West Sussex Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) who can be contacted on 01403 229900 or out of hours on 0330 222 6664, email MASH@westsussex.gcsx.gov.uk
Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
Lyminster Primary School is an inclusive and happy school with high aspirations for our pupils. Exciting learning challenges help all children access the National Curriculum, celebrating both achievement and effort. We respond to children’s diverse learning needs and we work to reduce any barriers to learning. We are never complacent and always seek ways to improve what we can offer our children. We strive to support all children to learn, reflect and question, within a learning environment that allows our children to feel safe, confident and happy.
Our Inclusion Leader (SENDCo) is Mrs Rachel Yarrow. Please feel free to contact her via the school office, or speak to your child’s Class Teacher if you would like any more information.
SEN Information Report
The aim of the SEN Information Report is to improve the accessibility and transparency of information for parents, professionals and practitioners. One of the outcomes of this will be a shared understanding of available services and resources to support open conversations. We want to work in close partnership with parents, our local community and other professionals in order to provide high quality education for all our pupils.
The Local Offer comprises of fourteen questions that provide parents and carers with information about the provision provided and arrangements made at our school to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
