Great Alne Primary School


At Great Alne, we safeguard and promote the welfare of children and all adults. We expect all staff, parents and volunteers to share this commitment. 

If you are concerned for the welfare of any child, adult or family in the school community, please arrange to talk to Mr Penn at the earliest opportunity or email 

if you believe a child is in  immediate danger, you should call the police on 999. 

Great Alne Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding pupils within its care. We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils.

We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. All staff are trained and annual training updates keep adults informed of any safeguarding and Prevent updates and current initiatives. Our policies follow National and Local Authority guidelines. All staff, including volunteers, are rigorously checked before starting at Great Alne Primary School, having clear safeguarding procedures both on site and for activities off the school site.

There are two Designated Safeguarding Leaders in school - Mr Penn and Mrs Dunbar - and all staff receive ongoing safeguarding development through school in-service training. Headteacher Mr Penn and the Chair of Governors are trained in safer recruitment procedures.

For further information please view our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.

Thank you for helping us to provide a safe and welcoming environment where everyone is respected and valued.
