Keeping Children Safe

At Downlands Community Primary we are committed to safeguarding children. Safeguarding is seen as something that is the responsibility of everyone in school: staff, governors, volunteers and even children. The designated safeguarding lead is Mr James Rielly (Headteacher).

The deputy safeguarding leads are Mrs Christine Goodall, Miss Marcelle Hoare and Jodi Loveless. 

Downlands Community Primary have trained professionals to help support a child’s emotional needs such as anger management, counselling, understanding emotions, transitions, family support, team building, friendship and social skills.

For more information please speak to Mrs Waters or Mrs Williams
