Safeguarding Team


At St Columba’s Primary School we have a school team in place to deal with Child Protection and Safeguarding. The team are made up from members of school staff and include a trained representative from our Board of Governors. We work closely with the EANI Child Protection Support Team and all staff working across the whole school receive child protection training annually.  All procedures and relevant information regarding Child Protection and Safeguarding can be found within our policies which you have received and indeed from our school website.  Within our school we have our Child Protection and Safeguarding Displays and on these boards we also have a copy of our Child Protection/ Pastoral Care Policies and flowcharts to accompany these. Please feel free to use the links on the website to download and read any copies of our school policies that you require.  Further information about Child Protection can be found at EANI website by clicking the link:
