At Milton, the safety and wellbeing of our children is paramount. A child-centred approach ensures that our pupils are at the heart of everything we do and is fundamental in promoting the welfare of every child.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and all staff have a role to play in ensuring that we provide the best outcomes for our pupils in a safe, secure and nurturing environment. As a team, we work tirelessly to promote the health, safety, development and wellbeing of every pupil which enables them to fulfil their journey through education.
At Milton Primary, our Designated Safeguarding Leads are:
Mrs Bailey and Miss Parry take lead responsibility for any child protection issues in school.
We are committed to the Operation Encompass Partnership. This is an information-sharing partnership between Staffordshire Police and Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent educational settings which allows schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.
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 concerns about pupils are discussed with parents and carers, unless we have reason to believe that sharing this information may put a child at risk. We work in partnership with the local authority when we have concerns about a child that require a higher level of support. Often, we work with families through early intervention in order for children to be well educated, healthy and safe, cared for by resilient families and strong communities.
