Safeguarding and Pupil Safety (last updated March 2020) Plans linked to Schools being closed

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. 
 
At this time of closure it is still important that we look out for our community, policies have been adapted to ensure that we remain vigilant during this period of self isolation ( new policy below)
 
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 Butler and our Deputy Designated Officers are Rachel Richards, Claire Spankie and Charlotte Ryan.
 
Our Safeguarding Governor is Reverend Sally Lynch.
 
Thank you,
 
Amanda Butler
Head Teacher
