Safeguarding

We take our Safeguarding and child protection responsibilities very seriously. Our safeguarding policy ensures that our school has effective measures in place to safeguard your children from the potential risk of harm and that the safety and wellbeing of the children are of the highest priority in all aspects of our school's work. Having the policy in place ensures that all members of our school community:
  • Are aware of their responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection.
  • Know the procedures that should be followed if they have a cause for concern.
  • Know where to go to find additional information regarding safeguarding.
  • Are aware of the key indicators relating to child abuse.
  • Fully support the school's commitment to safeguarding and child protection.
Our designated lead for Safeguarding and Child Protection is our Headteacher, Mrs Beverley Dolman, who can be contacted directly by email at head@acton.cheshire.sch.uk or by calling the school office. Our designated deputy lead for Safeguarding and Child Protection is our Acting Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Caroline Middleton. 

Operation Encompass

“In conjunction with Cheshire Police, Calveley Primary Academy is involved in a new initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.”

Our Key Adults are Mrs Beverley Dolman and Mrs Caroline Middleton.

PANTs Campaign - the Underwear rule

We have a range of information and materials that we have specially produced for parents to help them talk to their children in an appropriate way about keeping safe and prevent abuse.  You may have heard about our recent PANTs Campaign and the underwear rule.

It may be useful to know that our underwear rule materials are produced in several different languages: Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian and Welsh and we also have specific guides for parents with children with special learning needs.
