What can I do if I am worried about a child?

RONEC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children and its community.  We require all staff, volunteers and visitors (this includes parents) to share this commitment.  You have a duty to report any concerns you may have to a member of staff.

If you are concerned about:

  • Something a child says:
  • Marks or bruising on a child;
  • Changes in a child’s behaviour or demeanour;
  • the safety of a child;

You must immediately inform the Designated Safeguarding Lead – Alison Lentz.  In her absence inform a member of the Safeguarding Team.

If you feel that a child might be at risk of harm but are unsure then inform a member of the Safeguarding Team immediately who will offer advice and take appropriate action.  A copy of the schools safeguarding policy is available from the school office or on our website.
