‘Nurturing Individual Excellence’


In the event of a safeguarding concern, please contact:


At Excalibur Primary School, the safety and well being of our pupils is at the heart of our work. This means we take child protection very seriously.

All staff (teachers, teaching assistants, kitchen staff, midday assistants, admin staff, the caretaker and cleaner) have completed Basic Awareness of Safeguarding Training. The most recent whole staff training took place on Monday 21st September 2020. Staff complete an annual update training every September.

The Safeguarding lead in school is Juliet Jones and the Safeguarding governor is Gail Whittingham.

All staff recruitment panels include a person who has completed Safer Recruitment in Education training.

All adults in school are required to wear an Excalibur Primary School identification badge and must electronically sign in in the reception area.  On the back of the visitor badges are the visitors code of conduct that should be followed whilst on the school premises.

All staff, governors (who are left alone with pupils), students and volunteers undertake a DBS check in school. DBS records are kept on the Single Cenral Record in the school office.

If you have any concerns or notice anything that you feel needs to be reported to someone then please speak to the headteacher. If the headteacher is not available and you have an immediate concern then please speak to an assistant headteacher.

Otherwise, leave your name and contact details at the office and the headteacher will call you.

Thank you for your help.
