Safeguarding Children at Stoughton Infant and Nursery School
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place. All staff, governors and visitors and volunteers must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a young person’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with his/her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the young person’s welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is:
Sarah Carrington - firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Deputy Safeguard Leads are:
Claire Marrow - email@example.com
Rebecca Selmes - firstname.lastname@example.org
Melissa Chapman - email@example.com
All can be contacted on 01483 504172
If you are concerned about a young person’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observation or conversation heard and report to the DSL without delay. Do not conduct your own investigation.
If you have a urgent concern outside of school hours or you wish to report a concern yourself, please call the C-SPA on 0300 470 9100
If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff then you should report this to Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) who will consider what action to take.
Surrey's Early Help Hub
As part of the development of Surrey's Early Help offer, they are building a Hub which is intended to become a go-to resource to help parents looking for additional information about how to support their children.
By their own admittance they are starting small and initially just focusing on behaviour but the intention is that this builds to be much more comprehensive in terms of what it offers.

Stoughton Infant School is now part of the Operation Encompass Scheme which will run jointly between local schools, Surrey Police and Surrey County Council. For more information please see the letter below.
