Safeguarding at Becket Primary School

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everybody’s responsibility.

If at any point there is a risk of immediate, serious harm to a child, a referral should be made to Children’s Social Care and/or the police straight away.

Anybody can make the referral.  Call Ashtree House on 01332 641142.

If you would prefer to speak in confidence to a person external to our school you can call the NSPCC Helpline on 0800 028 0285.

If you have ANY concerns about a child please speak immediately to our Safeguarding Team:

  • Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs D Murphy, Assistant Head
  • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs S. James, Headteacher
  • Staff with Safeguarding Responsibility: Mrs R. Varley, Assistant Head
