Meet the Safeguarding Team

If you have any concerns about a child or adult at Naburn CE Primary School please contact a member of the Safeguarding team immediately.

Child Protection

Child protection is part of safeguarding and refers to the protection given to specific children who are suffering, or at risk of suffering, harm.

Kate Durham is the designated safeguarding lead, with Clare Burton as deputy designated safeguarding lead and Julie Noble as deputy DSL in training. Anne Clark is the designated safeguarding governor.

The welfare of our children is of paramount importance to all members of our community, and safeguarding is a key responsibility of all staff at Naburn CE Primary School. Teachers and teaching assistants undergo training in Safeguarding which includes includes, but is not limited to, Child Protection and Prevent (the name given to the training which aims to prevent young children becoming radicalised) with the relevant staff also completing training in Safer Recruitment and First Aid. All staff and governors complete a ‘Basic Awareness’ qualification in Safeguarding as part of the induction process.

Staff safeguarding training is completed annually; this training also includes attendees reading and agreeing to the DFE’s Keeping Children Safe in Education (part 1) and the Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy, which can be found in the Safeguarding section on our Policies and Documents page.

In our modern world, technology poses certain risks that we want to protect our children against.

At Naburn CE Primary we use CPOMS as part of our approach to Safeguarding. CPOMS is the market leading software solution for monitoring Safeguarding, wellbeing and all pastoral issues.  CPOMS (Child Protection Online Management System) helps schools record concerns and incidents, enabling schools to identify trends and patterns, and allowing  us to intervene earlier and better support vulnerable pupils.


CEOP is here to keep children safe from sexual abuse and grooming online.
