Street Lane Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and safeguarding. Our designated person to contact regarding any issue relating to safeguarding is Mrs N Austin-Cooke, the Head teacher. Due to staffing changes, the deputy Safeguarding Lead will commence this role in September 2021. The nominated Safeguarding Governor is Mrs J. Stephens.
The Anti-Bullying Lead is Mrs Austin-Cooke and the nominated governor is Mrs J. Bridges.
All staff have up to date safeguarding training.
Safeguarding arrangements at Street Lane Primary School are underpinned by a number of key principles:
- Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility: all Staff, Governors and Volunteers should play their full part in keeping children safe;
- We will aim to protecting children using national, local and school child protection procedures;
- That all Staff, (Governors and Volunteers) have a clear understanding regarding abuse and neglect in all forms; including how to identify, respond and report. This also includes knowledge in the process for allegations against professionals. Staff, (Governors and Volunteers) should feel confident that they can report all matters of Safeguarding in the School or College where the information will be dealt with swiftly and securely, following the correct procedures with the safety and wellbeing of the children in mind at all times.
- That we operate a child-centred approach: a clear understanding of the needs, wishes, views and voices of children.
At Street Lane Primary we have an open door policy, please speak to us if you have any worries, concerns or queries about any aspect of your child’s school life or home life. WE ARE ALWAYS HERE TO HELP!

Safer Internet Day 2020
Every year at Street Lane, we celebrate Safer Internet Day by holding a whole school e-safety day. This year, as part of our work to ensure that we all stay safe online at Street Lane Primary, we organised a day of activities, centred around how to stay safe when online and knowing what to do if we don’t feel safe.
All of the children completed activities and produced different ways of informing us how we can stay safe.
The theme of the day was ‘Free to be me- exploring online identity’. Throughout the day, children were learning about how to create a good online reputation, how to represent themselves online, what should and shouldn’t be shared and what to do if anything worries them when online.
