At Fairlight Primary & Nursery School, we strive to be a place where pupils, staff, helpers, families and other visitors will be made welcome and comfortable and where we will treat each other with respect.
We believe that all children and young people have the right to protection from neglect and abuse and that their welfare is of paramount importance. Fairlight Primary & Nursery School is a place where learning and personal development takes place in a climate of trust and confidence and where we value everyone's unique contribution to our community.
Everyone has a responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and for ensuring that they are protected from harm.
All staff and volunteers working in the school have a duty to ensure that children are safe and protected. We all have a duty to ensure that if there are any concerns relating to the welfare or safety of a child, the pan-Sussex child protection procedures are followed.
We will always try to work in partnership with families. However if there is any conflict between the needs of the child or young person and those of parents/carers or professionals, the needs of the young person will always come first.
The school's Child Protection Policy can be accessed on the school’s website or you can request a copy from the school office. If you have any safeguarding concerns during or as a result of your visit, please report them to the staff below:
The designated senior people for Child Protection are Donna Barber (Assistant Head) and Damien Jordan (Headteacher).
