Whitchurch CE Infant & Nursery School


At Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery School, the governors and staff fully recognise the contribution the school makes to safeguarding children. We recognise that the safety and protection of all pupils is of paramount importance and that all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in protecting pupils from harm.   


We believe that our school provides a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes all pupils’ social, physical, emotional and moral development

Ultimately, effective safeguarding of children can only be achieved by putting children at the centre of the system, and by every individual and agency playing their full part, working together to meet the needs of our most vulnerable children in line with Working Together 2015 and Keeping Children Safe In Education (KCSIE) 2016.




Mrs Hicks is the school’s Safeguarding Lead

The Safer School initiative is a holistic, practical and realistic approach to school security and personal safety. 
New Accreditation - Overall Excellent
Safer Schools 
Safer Schools is a security/safety initiative and Whitchurch CE Infant School became an accredited ‘Safer School’ in 2014. Part of the Safer Schools process includes a regular review of the Safer School criteria and this includes holding a regular Safer School Group meeting. I recently attended one of these Group meetings at the school and I would like to recognise the school for the continual hard work in maintaining the Safer School accreditation. At this meeting, we reviewed the security/safety measures, updated the action plan and reviewed the incident reporting. The Police are normally part of this meeting but were unable to attend on the date. The school received a new certificate of accreditation. Overall, excellent!
