Safeguarding

Nerrols Primary School and Nursery takes the safety of children, staff and parents/carers very seriously.  Nerrols is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

It is everybody’s responsibility to act if they feel that a child is at risk. 

If you are concerned for a child’s wellbeing please contact one of the school’s trained Designated Safeguarding Leads:  

  • Mrs Rhian Locker, Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs Andrea Bolton, Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs Catherine Cowlin, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

Alternatively, concerns about a child’s welfare can be discussed with:

  • Children’s Social Care at Somerset Local Authority by calling ‘Somerset Direct’ on 0300 123 2224
  • The police on 101, or in an emergency, 999

Our safeguarding governor is Mr Ian Fudge

All adults at Nerrols are subject to vetting and a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check.  All staff at Nerrols complete a thorough and comprehensive safeguarding induction and receive regular safeguarding training throughout the year.
