Here at Manor Park School and Nursery , we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We believe that all children deserve the best possible experience at school and our aim is to help them be the best that they can be across every area of school life – academic, social, personal, physical and spiritual. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.

The designated safeguarding lead is Mr Simon Cotterill and the deputy safeguarding lead is Mrs Sarah Jeffery.

The nominated governor for safeguarding is Bridget Wall (Governor).

The designated lead for looked after children is Bridget Wall.

All adults who work in school have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies.

All adults are also expected to read the DfE guidance: Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022

It should be read alongside statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children and our safeguarding policy.

Information sharing is vital to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Click here to view the DfE guidance: Information Sharing

Effective working together depends on an open approach and honest relationships between agencies. Where professionals consider that the practice of other professionals is placing children at risk of harm, they must be assertive, act swiftly and ensure that they challenge the relevant professionals in line with the School’s whistleblowing policy.

Schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. This is referred to as Prevent. All staff members have completed the necessary Prevent training.

All adults at Manor Park are made aware of the Cheshire East Consultation Service website: ChECS - Cheshire East Children's Consultation Service .This provides support to employees wishing to raise concerns.

Useful Links for Parents:

  • As part of our curriculum, we teach the children about the acronym PANTS. It was created by the NSPCC.  Talk PANTS helps children understand that their body belongs to them, and they should tell someone they trust if anything makes them feel upset or worried. Please follow this link for further information and access to the video and resources that we share in school: Pants are Private.
