Our Safeguarding Team

At Inmans Primary there is a specialised team to ensure that all pupils are safe and feel safe. The team will meet at least monthly to discuss vulnerable pupils, audit CPOMS records, evaluate current practice and policy. This team consists of the following members:

Mrs Faulkner

Deputy Child Protection Coordinator

Mrs Lilley

Emotional Literacy Support Assistant

Mrs Walker

Mr Hanson

The safeguarding team will meet at least monthly to discuss vulnerable pupils, audit CPOMS records, evaluate current practice and policy.  There are clear roles and responsibilities for each member:

Leading all matters connected to safeguarding and child protection

Supporting the DSL, especially if the DSL is out of school. As SENCO Tracy will also lead on the education and welfare of SEND pupils

Lead on the emotional and well-being of all Inmans pupils, identifying and providing additional support as appropriate

Family Liaison Officer
Develop relationships with families that may need additional support. Manage attendance levels and provide advice to staff, parents and carers regarding medical conditions in school.

Safeguarding Governor
The role of the safeguarding governor is key to understanding the effectiveness of safeguarding for everyone in the school. The safeguarding governor should understand the requirements of safeguarding guidance and legislation, and are ‘confident in their challenge to executive leaders on strategies for monitoring and improving the behaviour and safety of pupils.’ (Competency Framework for Governance (DfE 2017)).  

Deputy Safeguarding Governor
Supporting the Safeguarding Governor

The team will seek advice and follow the school safeguarding policy and other linked policies (Such as whistle blowing) as appropriate. The DSL will ensure that each member of the team is able to access training which is necessary for them to fulfil their role.
Operation Encompass is a police and education early information safeguarding partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support to children experiencing domestic abuse.

At Inmans Primary School we believe Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. We want to work in partnership with you, and discuss with you, any concerns we may have or that you may have. Since the first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.

The East Riding Safeguarding Children Board has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all. If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to any of the Safeguarding Team, Mrs Faulkner, Mrs Fellows, Mrs Lilley & Mrs Walker, Mr Hanson & Mrs Everitt

E-safety at Inmans

The internet is an amazing resource which enables children and young people to connect, communicate and be creative in a number of different ways, on a range of devices. However, the internet is always changing, and being able to keep up to date with your children’s use of technology can be a challenge. Devices can be great for learning and development, however parents should be aware of the content available online and the chance of your child seeing something they shouldn’t when online. Pre-installed parental controls are available for most devices, laptops and consoles and are part of the system when you buy them. You can often download e-safety apps and software to supplement these controls. But the most important thing is to set the controls on the device itself.
