Safeguarding and Pupil Safety (last updated Feb 2017)

St Luke’s Church of England School is committed to the welfare and safety of all its pupils and provides a ‘safe, secure and happy’ environment that promotes social, physical and moral development of the individual child. 
 
The school follows procedures outlined in the Berkshire Local Safeguarding Board (BLSB) easily accessed online at (http://proceduresonline.com/berks)
 
At St Luke's, we are responsible for your child's safety while they are at school and or on a school trip. We take this responsibility extremely seriously; please contact us as soon as possible if you have any concerns.
 
As part of the Prevent Strategy - our priority is to also keep children safe, by working together with key partner agencies and all our communities to ensure that we tackle any kind of extremism and radicalisation.
 
We want to work closely with our communities to build confidence in a two way flow of information so as to quickly identify those most vulnerable and in need of support. 
 
Our Designated Child Protection Officer is Amanda Hough and our Deputy Designated Officers are Bethany Greenwood, Emily Nash and Claire Spankie.
 
Our Safeguarding Governor is Reverend Sally Lynch.
 
Thank you,
 
Amanda Hough
Head Teacher
