Shipham First School acknowledges our duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and expects everyone to share this commitment.


If you are worried about a child and would like to speak to a member of staff in private, please speak to either Mr Ewens (our  Headteacher and Safeguarding Lead), Mrs Macleod (our Administrator) or Mrs Dodd (our Deputy Safeguarding Lead).  


If you feel your concern needs escalating or have a concern about a member of staff, please write to Mrs Diane Sleeman (Safeguarding Governor) at the school address.
