SafeguardingWhitegrove Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which we consistently follow. Parents and carers are encouraged to read the Policy; a copy of the policy can be requested from school or please click here. It can also be found on Fronter in the Parents’ Room.
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 his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

The child protection standards in our Safeguarding Policy are consistent with the Berkshire Local Safeguarding Children Boards’ Child Protection Procedures Website and the Government publications: ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children (2006)’ and ‘What To Do If You’re Worried a Child is Being Abused (2006)’. Please note that this strategic policy is designed to complement and provide a context for the more detailed Child Protection Procedures and does not replace them. Please refer to those for full guidance on child protection investigations and all multi-agency safeguarding procedures.
