Newbold Church School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.

Our school will support all children by;

  • Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school
  • Encouraging self -esteem and self-assertiveness
  • Effectively tackling bullying and harassment.

We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse.  Staff working with children are well placed to identify such abuse.

At Newbold Church School in order to protect our children, we aim to:

  • Create an atmosphere where all our children can feel secure, valued and listened to
  • Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse
  • Respond quickly, appropriately and effectively to cases of suspected abuse.   




The designated lead for safeguarding at Newbold Church School is Mrs Kerry Marsh.

The Deputy Designated Lead for Safeguarding at Newbold Church School is Mrs Helen Burn.

    Keeping our children safe - week 9 Twitch

    In the ever changing world of the internet and Social Media, it is important that we keep ourselves aware of the different Sites, Apps and Games that our children are accessing, and the dangers that they might pose. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing a number of factsheets that help understand some of the most popular things that our children access, and demonstrate where the dangers might lie. Please do take a few moments to educate yourself - it could make the difference when keeping your child safe.
