Potley Hill Primary School takes the subject of child protection very seriously, and has stringent systems and procedures that safeguard our children.


The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Brent Ellis (Headteacher), with the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads being Mrs Natalie Wallace (Assistant Headteacher) and Mrs Valerie Conroy (Senior Administrative Officer).


All staff are regularly trained and our two main policies, "Safeguarding Policy” and “Child Protection Policy", are reviewed and updated on an annual basis with staff and Governors.  All staff have undergone DBS checks, and all volunteers and outside agencies have to have a current DBS check before being able to work within the school.


Are you concerned about the safety or welfare of a child?

You don't need to know everything about the child before contacting Children's Services. If you are concerned about the welfare of a child, it is important that you talk to someone about this.
