Wren Spinney is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play and school staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early. The school is expected to ensure that appropriate procedures are in place for responding to situations where it believes a child has been abused or is at risk of abuse.

At any time you may be concerned about information which suggests a child is being neglected or experiencing physical, emotional or sexual harm.

You may; 

  • observe physical signs
  • notice changes in the child's behaviour or presentation
  • pick up signs of emotional distress
  • have a child disclose a harmful experience to you

Safeguarding referrals may be made direct in the following ways:

Contact MASH on 0300 126 1000 or

In an emergency outside office hours contact the Police on 999 or Emergency Duty team.

If you have a concern, you MUST report it - inform a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) without delay (or The Chair of Governors where appropriate).
  • Make a written record (using the child's own words),
  • Sign and date it 
  • Pass the record to a DSL immediately
