Ickleford Primary


Ickleford Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects everyone to share this commitment. This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and robust safeguarding procedures in place.  Teaching, non-teaching and supply staff, as well as volunteers and governors ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with a child’s parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

Mobile Phones

To ensure the safeguarding of all children and staff, the governing board have agreed that children are not permitted to bring mobile phones into school.
