To help staff monitor the welfare of each child it is extremely important that parents keep the school informed of any unusual or serious injuries that their child has suffered and any changes that have occurred in home circumstances which might cause a child’s behaviour to change. In cases where staff have serious concerns about the welfare of a child, then the school has a duty to make a referral to Social Care. If this ever happens, please remember that it is because the school has a responsibility to promote and safeguard the welfare of every child in our care.

The school has a detailed Safeguarding Policy available on the school website or from the School Office. This document outlines policies and procedures in relation to safeguarding at Ardleigh Green Infant School.

If you have any worries or concens about the welfare of a child at our school. Please contact us. All information will of course be treated in the strictest confidence.
