Safeguarding is the term schools, police, medical professionals and others use to refer to children's welfare. In the first instance if you have concerns about a child's welfare at Ibstock Junior School we would ask you to come to us. However sometimes it may seem better to go to another agency.

Below is a link to the Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Board which provides further information and links which you may find useful.


At Ibstock Junior School we have three Designated Safeguarding Leads:

Mr Lewin  Headteacher

Mr Carte  Deputy Headteacher

Mrs Watson Special Educational Needs Coordinator


In addition, Mrs Veneziale is our Safeguarding governor and regularly monitors the Safeguarding provision at the school.
