Keeping Children Safe

Safeguarding at Stalyhill Infant School 2018-19


Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs L. Lockett, Headteacher


Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL) are Mrs L. Plant and Mrs N. Wheeler


Our Governor in charge of Safeguarding children is Mrs G. Parkes

All staff, including temporary staff and volunteers are subject to stringent background checks including clearance with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to ensure their suitability for working with children.


Whilst the prime focus of Stalyhill Infant School is to secure the best educational provision for the child, the school believes that the safety, welfare and care of children is paramount. We are therefore committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted into our care at all times.

Due to the updates to Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018, we are currently working with Tameside Local Authority to update our Child Protection Policy. This will be uploaded to the website as soon as possible.

Operation Encompass


Our school is part of a scheme that runs between Stalybridge schools and Greater Manchester Police. This project is called Operation Encompass.  It aims to support children who are affected by domestic violence by ensuring that their school is informed. This allows the school to then support the children.

If you have any  questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
