Tolleshunt D’Arcy Primary Academy is committed to Safeguarding and the Prevent Strategy. The safety of all is paramount.
We all have a duty to safeguard the children in our care and if the school suspects or knows that a child is at risk of significant
harm, we will make a referral to Social Services. The school does not investigate any disclosures that children may make, we
are a referring agency. Procedures on safeguarding from the Government make it clear that all staff should operate with an
‘it could happen here’ approach to any concerns they may have. If you have any concerns about a child please telephone the
Essex Child and Families Hub on 0345 603 7627.

The designated safeguarding leaders at the school are:

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss E Reece (Head of School)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mr M Collingwood (Acting Assistant Headteacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs L Osborne (Interim Executive Headteacher)

Please contact these staff members with your Safeguarding concerns during school hours.

If you would like to talk through a Safeguarding concern out of school hours, please contact the Essex Children and Families Hub on 0345 603 7627

Our Safeguarding governors are:

Mrs H. Steele and Mrs S. Patel
