St Davids Road, Kingsthorpe, Northampton, NN2 7QL

At Kingsthorpe Grove Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  Our school is a safe place for children; every adult in our school takes the responsibility for safeguarding our children extremely seriously. We have trained designated safeguarding leaders and a designated safeguarding governor.

We teach the children about personal safety through our curriculum.  We have clear guidance for children, teachers and parents to help children to use the internet safely and responsibly (see our Online Safety policy below).

Our staff recruitment policies and practices meet safer recruitment requirements.  We always pursue identity checks and qualification checks and we take up written references before confirming employment.  We require clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) before employing any staff, this includes supply teachers and outside clubs and coaching staff.

Should you have any safeguarding concerns, please contact one of our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Leads):  Angela Woods, Alison Dolan, Lorraine Brown and Gayle Damrell. Our Safeguarding / Child Protection policy can be found on our Policies page.
