Everyone who works with children – including teachers, teaching assistants, midday assistants, office staff, coaches, pastoral staff, caretakers, and all other roles at St Oswald’s Primary School including volunteers and governors – have a responsibility in keeping children safe. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action.
St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding our children and keeping them safe.
Children can speak to any adult in school about anything that is worrying them. However, there are three adults who have the particular job of keeping children safe.
The Safeguarding Team are:
Ms Lennon is the Head Teacher and the Designated Safeguarding Lead in the school (DSL).
Mrs Orwin is the Assistant Head Teacher and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead in the school (DDSL).
Mrs Jones is a Governor with specific responsibility for safeguarding.
Early help refers to the offer of any information, advice, or support to children, young people, and their families as soon as possible in their lives, or when issues emerge, to help prevent problems from escalating.
Mrs Orwin takes the lead on all pastoral matters in the school and can provide early help and other types of family support. Mrs Orwin can be contacted on 01925 813015 or stoswalds_primary_assistanthead:warrington.gov.uk
