Safeguarding information

Safeguarding the children at Perton Primary Academy is a key priority and we are working to develop a culture of safeguarding in school.

We are committed to provide a secure and supportive environment in which children can develop and grow into mature and responsible people. Safeguarding children is an essential part of our holistic approach to ensure that children are protected and that every child reaches their full potential.

If you have any concerns about a child please speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (Miss K Willis – Acting headteacher) or our deputy DSLs  (Mrs S Place and Miss N Ives)

What you can do

Parents and carers play a role in safeguarding children in their community. If you have any concerns, no matter how small, you should report them to someone who you trust will listen. The school is required to have a designated child protection officer for this purpose. Parents and children should speak to the safeguarding officer if they have any concerns about a child or staff member.

If you think a child or young person may be in immediate danger, call 999.

Otherwise, please contact SCAS (Staffordshire Childrens Advice and Support) immediately on 0300 111 8007.
