Churchend Primary Academy

Be the best possible version of yourself

Designated Safeguarding Lead

At Churchend Primary Academy, we recognise our legal and ethical duty to promote the well-being of pupils at our academy, protect them from harm, and take appropriate action where we have concerns. We understand that we have a primary responsibility for the care, welfare and safety of the pupils in our charge and we will carry out this duty through our teaching and learning, extra-curricular activities, pastoral care and extended school activities.


At Churchend Primary Academy, we aim to adopt an open and accepting attitude towards children as part of our responsibility for their pastoral care. We hope that parents and children will feel free to talk about any concerns and will see school as a safe place if there are any difficulties at home.


If you have any concerns about a child or would like some advice or support please speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr Howard Seymour (Headteacher) or one of the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads, Mrs Helen Clark (Deputy Headteacher - Inclusion), Mrs Debbie Allen (Deputy Headteacher), Dr Nik Allen (Assistant Headteacher), Mrs Sian Smithers (Assistant Headteacher), Mrs Carolyn Baines (Family Liaison Lead) or Mrs Dawn Thompson (Wrap Around Care Manager).
