Bayards Hill Safeguarding Statement
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children
Bayards Hill Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which we refer to in our prospectus and on our website. We encourage all parents, carers and visitors to read this policy.
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 his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is:
- Mrs Sarah Reading - Deputy Headteacher
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are:
- Mrs Rachel Medley - Headteacher
- Mrs Jessica Robinson – Deputy Headteacher
- Mrs Libby Pringle – Assistant Headteacher
If you have any concerns about a child’s well being or safety please ask at the office to speak to one of our safeguarding leads.
The Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) is Alison Beasley.

This is a resource for keeping young people safe with information about what to do if you are worried about a child. The following link provides a wealth of information and support for parents and carers.
Alternatively you can contact the Safeguarding hub directly (MASH)
MASH is a multi-agency team which identifies risks to vulnerable adults and children
MASH stands for multi-agency safeguarding hub which seeks to enable the sharing of information so that risks to children can be identified at an early stage.
It is a link between universal services such as schools and GPs and statutory services such as police and social care.
If you have a concern about a child, please call MASH on 0845 050 7666.
