Safeguarding Ethos


Safeguarding in Tattingstone CEVC Primary School is considered everyone’s responsibility and as such our school aims to create the safest environment within which every pupil can achieve. Tattingstone CEVC Primary School recognises the contribution it can make in ensuring that all pupils registered or who use our school, feel that they will be listened to and have appropriate action taken to any concerns they may raise.


We will do this by working in partnership with other agencies and establishing effective working relationships with parents/carers to develop and provide activities and opportunities throughout our curriculum that will help to equip our children with the skills they need. This will include materials and learning experiences that will encourage our children to develop essential life skills and learn behaviours to keep them safe and healthy as evidenced in the PSHE curriculum.



The procedures that we follow have been laid down by the local Safeguarding Children Board of Suffolk and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all. If you would like to know more about our procedures or policy, please come and speak to us.


The Designated Safeguarding Leads are:


  • Beverley Derrett –( Headteacher)
  • Mrs Sue Stopher (Yr 2, 3 & 4 )
  • Mrs Suzanne McCulloch (Yr 5 & 6)
  • Jenny Cocksedge- (Class teacher in Ducklings / Puffins)


Theresa Vinnicombe is our Safeguarding Governor.

Radicalisation is when someone starts to believe or support extreme views. They could be pressured to do things illegal by someone else or they might change their behaviour and beliefs and believe that sexual, religious or racial violence is OK.

Radicalisation can be really difficult to spot but children who are at risk of radicalisation may:


  • Have low self-esteem, feel isolated and lonely or wanting to belong.
  • Be victims of bullying or discrimination.
  • Be unhappy about themselves and what others might think of them.
  • Be embarrassed or judged about their culture, gender, religion or race.
  • Feel stressed or depressed.
  • Feel angry at other people or the government.
  • Feel confused about what they are doing.
  • Feel pressured to stand up for other people.
