Safeguarding

At Lawn Primary School we are committed to supporting all of our children to do well. We will do everything we can to ensure our children are safeguarded and protected from harm.

Are you worried about a child?

If you have concerns that a child is being harmed or living in circumstances that might be harmful in the future, these concerns will always be taken seriously.

You may be worried about what might happen to you or your family if you report your concerns. When someone makes a call to talk about their concerns, they will always be asked for their name and contact details - so they can be contacted again if needed. However, you can ask for your details to remain confidential, or provide information anonymously.

Getting help

Please email at any time, including holidays and weekends, and it will be answered as soon as possible. The Safeguarding Leader will always monitor their email account and respond to emails over the holiday period from parents as well as professionals regarding safeguarding issues. 

You can email safeguarding concerns to safeguarding@lawn.derby.sch.uk 

All DSLs can be contacted at school on 01332 550178.
