Aldbury C of E Primary and Nursery School


At Aldbury, the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our paramount concern.  We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us.  Our aim is that children will enjoy their time as pupil in our school.  We want to work in partnership with parents to help your child to achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution. 

To promote a safe environment for pupils, our selection and recruitment policy includes all checks on staff and regular volunteers' suitability, including Criminal Bureau Checks, as recommended by Hertfordshire Council in accordance with current legislation.

In accordance with our responsibilities under section 175 of the Education Act 2002, we have a Designated Person for Child Protection (Miss J Moore) who is a member of the Senior Leadership Team, and has received appropriate training for this role.  It is her responsibility to ensure that all staff in contact with children receive child protection awareness training on a regular basis. 

There are occasions that a concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We work with a range of agencies that are able to provide help, support and advice for parents and families. Whilst we would always aim to work in partnership with parents there may be exceptions to this, when concerns are raised, for the protection of a child.


We understand that at times parents/carers may have concerns about other families or children within our school setting. In this situation please come and talk to a member of the Safeguarding team to share your concerns. Similarly, we understand that there are times within a family setting that things become difficult. If you feel you would like some support or someone to talk to please do contact one of us and we can offer a range of guidance and support in the first instance.


If you want to know more about our procedures or need advice please contact our Designated Safeguarding Team on 01442 851240
