Early Help Offer
The Governors and staff at Swanwick Primary School have a responsibility to promote the safeguarding and welfare of all children in our care.
Child Protection is everyone’s business, if you have any immediate concerns about a child’s safety, you should contact Starting Point on 01629 533190 and request urgent help.
You can also contact Mrs Jilavu (Designated Safeguarding Lead and Acting Headteacher).
In the event that Mrs Jilavu is unavailable, you can contact one of the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads; Mrs Stone, Mrs Walton, Mr Morris or Miss Wright. To ensure an urgent response, please state this is a Safeguarding call.
Swanwick Primary School take their responsibility for Child Protection and Safeguarding seriously and ensure that all staff have a clear understanding of the role they play in keeping children safe, which includes being trained on how to recognise, respond and report abuse and neglect in all its forms.
