Walmley Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) with responsibility for Child Protection is Mrs Helen Murphy (in her absence the Deputy DSLs, Mrs Amy Baines, Mrs Leah Whittall and Miss Jenny Steele).
We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse and all staff are well placed to identify such abuse and respond quickly and effectively. If a child makes a disclosure or we have any concerns, this may result in a difficult conversation with you as we will always act in the best interest of the child. If you do have a concern about a child’s well-being, please report this to Mrs Murphy, Mrs Baines, Mrs Whittall or Miss Steele or any member of staff as an initial point of contact. Alternatively, you may ring Children’s Advice & Support Service directly on 0121 303 1888.
You can also view our Safeguarding Policy on our policies page.
If you are the victim of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse, Walmley Infant School is a safe place. You can talk to Mrs Murphy in confidence for advice and support.
