Jerome Primary School

Safeguarding and Early Help

 

Jerome Primary School actively engage with the Staffordshire Early Help Strategy, ensuring that all children receive the right help at the right time. Several members of staff have completed the Outcome Star Training - meaning that we can effectively lead Early Help meetings for our families.

 

Early Help involves bringing together people with the relevant skills and experience from the voluntary sector, community and/or other services to work in partnership with the child and/or their family. The aim is to help
families themselves build on their strengths to resolve identified issues and to become more resilient to prevent the issues from reoccurring.

At Jerome all staff receive regular updates and training to ensure they are able to effectively safeguard the children in their care. An online reporting tool is used to ensure information is quickly, efficiently and comprehensively gathered. Staff engage with external agencies - gaining advice, sharing information, and attending meetings - to ensure necessary action is taken when any safeguarding concern is raised.

 

At Jerome our Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Mrs Sarginson

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are: Mrs Ball and Mr Barry
