Our highest priority is to keep our children safe.
Mr Ben Nelson-Smith (Headteacher) is our Designated Lead for Child Protection.
Miss Nicky Postlethwaite is our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.
However, we all have the responsibility for our keeping children safe. If we have any concerns about any of our children, we will contact the Torbay Safeguarding Hub on 01803 208100. If you feel a child is in immediate danger, you should call 999 straight away.
If you have any safeguarding questions or concerns you can contact our safeguarding professionals as above by calling the school on 01803 556433.
We have a duty of care to refer any safeguarding concerns raised to other professionals that may be deemed necessary.
Collaton St Mary Primary is taking part in Operation Encompass which runs jointly between local schools and Devon and Cornwall Police. It is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening. The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.
