Langford Primary takes the safeguarding of children very seriously.

The safety and well-being of our children is our key responsibility. We have strict rules on recruitment of teachers and ensure that all adults that work with us are vetted through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). 

We teach our children about how to be safe in the community as well as online. If you have any concerns about the safety of any child, please speak to a member of staff who you feel comfortable with. Alternatively, if your concerns are about the use of digital media, you can report incidents to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre. 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Victoria Kidds (Head of School). 

Victoria heads our Safeguarding Team which consists of herself, Seamus Gibbons (Executive Headteacher), Hollie McKie's (Assistant Principal) and Gabriella Fiszman (Attendance and Family Liaison Officer).

All of our staff have been trained on dealing with the signs of abuse and they understand the important role they have to play in protecting our pupils from harm. This includes training on the government’s Prevent Strategy as well as recent guidelines on FGM. We follow a clear set of procedures when concerns arise and matters are dealt with sensitively. Our safeguarding policy can be found here.
