Wenhaston Primary School

Safeguarding and Child Protection

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Julia Bowles and the Alternate Designated Lead is Mrs R.Flynn. The PREVENT lead is Mrs Julia Bowles. Our Safeguarding Governor is Mrs K. Cook.

Parents should be aware that school takes its roles and responsibilities regarding the safeguarding or children very seriously and works in close partnership with parents to do so.  The school will take any reasonable action to ensure the welfare and safety of its pupils is maintained.


In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have a duty of care to follow Suffolk’s Safeguarding Children Board procedures and inform Children’s Social Care of their concern. We also follow the Suffolk SET procedures for child protection.


E-Safety:All children are taught e-safety at school using a variety of curriculum resources.   You can access the Childnet website and the Kidsmart website for support and advice for safe use of IT at home by clicking on the link below:

The e-safety part of the computing resources on Espresso via the Learning Zone are also an excellent resource we use in school.
