Our school recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils. We will endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.


Our Designated Safeguard Leader is Mrs H Headleand (or Miss Finley/Mrs Preece in her absence); child protection issues are her responsibility in school. Both 'Working Together to Safeguard Children (July 2018)' and 'Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2020)' require that all schools have a Designated Safeguard Lead in place to deal with child protection concerns and in Mrs Headleand's absence, Miss Finley (Deputy Head) and Mrs Preece (HLTA) are always available. 


If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of children outside of school hours, please use the links below for further information.

Operation Encompass


Brampton Cortonwood Infant School is now participating in Operation Encompass, a safeguarding team consisting of Rotherham Police Force and schools. Through Operation Encompass a trained key adult (Mrs Headleand) will be notified prior to the next school day, that a child has experienced or maybe affected by an incident of Domestic Abuse that the police have attended.


This allows the school to be proactive in caring for, nurturing, assisting and safeguarding the child. The report is confidential and only the safeguarding staff in school will have the information.
