Safeguarding at Linden

Linden Primary School fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support pupils in school.  Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. To fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. Our establishment has a culture of vigilance, we take a whole school approach to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we consider, at all times, what is in the best interest of the child and young person. We endeavour to identify concerns early, provide help for children, promote children’s welfare, take into consideration the child’s lived in experience and prevent concerns from escalating.

Safeguarding and promoting welfare of children is defined as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment;
  • Preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

If you have any concerns about  the safeguarding of our pupils, please feel free to contact the following Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL), via the school office on 0116 273 8435 or at
