The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. There is a strong culture of safeguarding at the school. All staff receive regular training. They are vigilant in spotting any pupils at risk of neglect or harm. They report any concerns quickly. Leaders keep detailed records of any concerns and incidents, along with any follow-up. Record-keeping is detailed and well organised. Leaders follow correct procedures when appointing new staff. All relevant recruitment checks are completed.

Springcroft Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
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 our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr Stephen Drew (Headteacher).
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Mrs Emma Gleave (Emotional and Wellbeing Lead).

“All staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils are respectful to adults and to other pupils. Pupils say bullying is very rare. When there are any issues, pupils are confident staff sort things out quickly”. (Ofsted, November 2021).
