King Richard III Infant School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a caring, supportive and safe environment, which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse. Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm, safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse and safe from discrimination or harassment.

If you are ever concerned about the safety or well‐being of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) listed below.


You might enjoy watching this with your children - a really fun approach to having a serious conversation, aimed at 3-7 year olds.

SAFER INTERNET DAY 2018 - 'Take a minute' video


This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Parents and carers are encouraged to read our Safeguarding Policy and leaflet by clicking on the links below. 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 pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day.

If a member of staff has concerns which relate to the actions or behaviour of another member of staff (which could suggest that person is unsuitable to work with children) then this will be reported to one of the DSLs in confidence, who will then refer the matter to the Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher).

Designated Senior Lead (DSL): 

Ms Lou Harrison (Headteacher)

Deputy DSLs: 

Mrs K. Barot (Deputy Headteacher)

Mrs S.Lord (SENCo and EYFS leader)

Mrs A. Jaeckels (Family Support Worker)

Mrs L. Marvelley (Office)
