Safeguarding

Our school is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young children and people and expects all staff, voulnteers and visitors to share this committment.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer is Mrs M Abbott.

We feel it is our duty to prepare the children of Crowle for the challenges and opportunities of a changing world.  Therefore, throughout our PSHE weekly lessons we use Go-Givers to support children's social, moral and cultural awareness.  Further information can be found on their website:

Children can contact Childline at any time if they have any issues, and can talk to them confidentially if they wish.  Further information can be found:

We would also like to make you aware of the Childline App "For Me" which is a free way for children to get advice if they need it.  Further information can be found on the following link:
