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.
If you have concerns about children in Ibstock please report your concerns to their school's Designated Safeguarding Lead.
We also invite in the NSPCC to discuss the importance of safeguarding.
