Safeguarding Governor

Westbrook Old Hall 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/Child Protection Policy.

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 Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Mary Lythall-Brennan (Head-teacher). Our Deputy Safe-guarding Lead is Mrs Louise Johnson (Deputy Headteacher) with Mrs Fiona Perry (Mental health, well-being and Early Help), Miss Cass Williams (Early Help). Mrs Anne Carr is our Safeguarding Governor.

Early Help

The Early Help process aims to support a family as a whole. A Lead Professional (from our School Safeguarding Team, Fiona Perry or Cass Williams) is assigned to the family after they have agreed to participate in the process. An Early Help Assessment is carried out to formulate an action plan which will best support the family needs moving forwards. A Team Around the Family Meeting is then held every 6 weeks to review the action plan. Family members and any professionals who are supporting the family are invited to contribute and attend. Support offered may involve referrals to outside agencies and help with completion of paperwork for referrals. Once the family members and professionals feel that the needs of the family have been successfully met, the closure paperwork is completed. At any time, the family can close to Early Help or be escalated to Social Care involvement. If a family have support from a Family Support or Children’s Centre Worker, they will act as Lead Professional in the Early Help process.

If you feel you need Early Help Support, please contact Fiona Perry or Cass Williams on the following email addresses:
