Safeguarding Information

At Cheam Common Junior Academy we adhere to all national and local polices in regard to Safeguarding Children and Young People. Cheam Common Junior is committed to gender, racial, religious and disability equality in every part of school life. Cheam Common Junior is dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

For information about What to do if you're worried a child is being abused, please read the guidance document as published by the DfE.

The LEO Academy Trust Safeguarding and child protection policy is written in collaboration with all DSL's across the Trust. As such this is the policy we follow at Cheam Common Junior.

At Cheam Common Junior the safety and welfare of our pupils is of utmost importance.

All adults working in schools have a duty to protect children/young people from all forms of harm and abuse as set out in the latest version of  ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (2022).

If there are Child Protection concerns then Suttons’ Social Care MASH referral systems are followed in accordance with the principles of the London Child Protection Procedures.
