Schools have a duty to safeguard the welfare of children; schools are expected to consult with Children, Schools and Families (CSF) if there is a concern for a child’s welfare. A referral to CSF is not intended as an accusation, it is a reporting of concerns in accordance with Hertfordshire Child Protection Procedures.
The headteacher is the designated teacher for child protection and will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about our child protection policies and practice. The child protection policy is available to parents in the policy folder in the school office. Chaulden Primary School is committed to the protection and safety of children and young people.
