Covid 19 updates:

Follow the links below for advice for parents and carers about the main risks children may be particularly vulnerable to at this time and information about available help and support.

At Newton Tony C of E VC Primary School we recognise that our primary responsibility is to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children in our care, and that everyone who comes into contact with children has a role to play in that. As part of our safeguarding policy and in line with our PREVENT Duty, we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles, and expect our visitors to share this commitment. Safeguarding is an important part of our everyday life. Please be vigilant and share any concerns if you think a child is at risk of harm either at school, within a family setting or in the wider community.

Report any concerns to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, our Head Teacher Miss Priestley or in her absence the Squirrels Class Teacher, Mrs Hillier.

Please be prepared to show your ID and register your visit when you enter the school building.  You will also be asked to wear an identification sticker/badge if you access the school grounds. On arrival, our Safeguarding procedures will be explained to you.  Please read our Safeguarding Information and related policies, which are displayed in the atrium area at the front of the school.
