At Ludlow Primary School, we believe that a caring school promotes the welfare, health, safety and guidance of every child. We recognise our statutory duty and pastoral duty to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our pupils.
Welcome to the LPS Support Team for children and families.
Life can be confusing and troubling at times for children, as well as for parents and extended family. This in turn can affect how children learn and behave in school. Sometimes it helps to have someone you can trust to talk to, someone who will support and listen to you and help you to work things out. That's what we hope we can offer the children and families who attend Ludlow Primary School, as well as lots of fun and laughter!
We strive to find ways to engage all our pupils, building trust and better communication between school and families. We hope you will find us friendly and approachable so that if you are worried about your child or a difficult situation in your family you can contact us for support.
If you have any questions, we would be happy to meet you at school or ring on 01584 873602.
At Ludlow Primary School, the Designated Safeguarding Lead is Kate Mather (Headteacher). She is supported by Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads who are Nicola Collins, Kim Pearce, Ruth Cummings and Keir Welch.
It is the responsibility of the DSL to ensure that all concerns are recorded accurately and referred to the appropriate agency quickly to ensure that necessary actions are taken to promote children’s welfare. It is also their responsibility to ensure that all staff and volunteers are trained to an appropriate level and are confident in sharing concerns they have with the Lead Designated Person. This training takes place each year.
There are a number of useful policies that help to explain our Safeguarding procedures. They include:
* Safeguarding and Child Protection policy
* Anti-bullying policy
* Behaviour policy
* Peer on Peer Abuse policy
* Staff Code of Conduct policy
