Safeguarding Support & E-Safety


If you have a Safeguarding concern about a child, please contact one of our Safeguarding Team, who wear pink Safeguarding lanyards.

Chudleigh CE VC Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection/Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed below and in the Policies section of our website.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

At Chudleigh, we take our role in safeguarding very seriously as we believe all children have the right to feel and be safe.

Please remember, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Visit the website for important information for parents and carers, children and young people and professionals who work with them. 

If you feel that a child may be at risk of harm, please notify one of the Safeguarding Team immediately. They will offer advice and take appropriate action.

Operation Encompass

We are very pleased that we are now linked to the Operation Encompass Scheme. 

Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

Further information about the scheme is included in the poster below and also on the Operation Encompass website.
