Safeguarding

At Loders Primary Academy we are committed to safeguarding the welfare and well being of our pupils.

We have clear and highly efficient Child Protection and Whistleblowing procedures.

Staff members are trained and skilled in safeguarding procedures.

Loders unique family ethos comes from a constant focus upon ensuring that our pupils are safe, free of prejudice and bullying, and are enabled/feel confident to express themselves.

We constantly scrutinise our environment to ensure that it meets our pupils’ entitlement to the best possible facilities and helps to maintain their physical and mental health.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is the Head of School, Mr Peter Beare.

The Deputy DSL is class teacher Mrs Rowan Beecham.
