Keeping Children Safe - Safeguarding Policies


Everyone at Uppingham C of E is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children.  Everyone who comes into contact with children, their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children and we are committed to providing an environment that is safe and secure for all our children, staff and visitors. We actively promote a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the wellbeing of others. 


Protecting children is everyone's responsibility.


Our Five Guiding Principles for Safeguarding are:

1. Nothing is more important than keeping children safe.

2. Everyone has a part to play.

3. Everyone must be vigilant.

4. Everyone has an absolute duty to report concerns and ensure they are acted upon.

5. Concerns must be reported immediately.



If you wish to discuss the welfare of a child at our school, please contact one of our trained safeguarding leads.


Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Julia Exton (Headteacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (Deputy DSL) is Mrs Emma Keegan (SENDCo)

What is Child Protection and Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is everything that promotes children’s welfare and reduces the risk of them suffering harm. Our school polices on our buildings, routines, curriculum planning, behaviour and attendance are all designed to:


  • Protect children from maltreatment;

  • Prevent impairment of children’s health or development;

  • Ensure children grow up with safe and effective care;

  • Allow us to take action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.


Child protection is part of safeguarding and refers to activities undertaken to prevent children suffering, or being likely to suffer, significant harm.
