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 Whitehouse Assistant Headteacher

Mrs Lewin Special Educational Needs Coordinator

Mrs McCarty Family Support Worker


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