Safeguarding Statement

Harbinger Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Andrew Smith (Headteacher). Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Matthew Warhurst (Deputy Headteacher), Judeda Ahmed (SENCO) and Jackie Garner (Foundation Stage coordinator). The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Martin Young.

The Tower Hamlets Safeguarding Hub (MASH) can be contacted on 0207 364 3444.

"Governors have an excellent knowledge of the school and rigorously hold senior leaders to account on school improvement. "
