Staff have a strong understanding of their safeguarding responsibilities. Leaders act swiftly when dealing with concerns. They work with families to ensure they receive the help they need. Staff with responsibility for safeguarding provide expert support. External support is well used when Inspection report: Grasmere Primary School 9 and 10 March 2022 3 needed.

Grasmere Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Everyone at Grasmere who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.
School staff are particularly important in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as we are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children. Our school staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children to prevent concerns from escalating. Our school will work with children’s social care, the police, health services and other relevant agencies to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

The school pays full regard to DfE guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ September 2021. We ensure that all appropriate measures are applied in relation to everyone who works in the school who is likely to be perceived by the children as a safe and trustworthy adult including e.g. volunteers and staff employed by contractors.
