At Chesterfield Primary School the Governors and staff fully recognise the contribution the school plays in safeguarding children.  The safety and protection of all children is of paramount importance and all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in protecting children from harm. If staff have any concerns about a child, or they have made a disclosure relating to physical, emotional or sexual abuse, neglect, female genital mutilation (FGM) or radicalisation they MUST follow the schools procedures as outlined in the Child Protection Policy.

Guidance on how to talk to a child who is raising a concern: 


  • Tell me what happened
  • Explain what you mean (so you are clear about people and events)
  • Describe what happened
  • Do not promise to keep it a secret
  • Your responsibility is to contact a designated member of staff
