Safeguarding at Jesmond Gardens Primary School

At Jesmond Gardens Primary school, we believe that


‘Together, we grow and strive for the exceptional, everyone, everyday’ and this is underpinned with these school values;


  • Trust
  • Happiness
  • Community
  • Pride
  • Resilience
  • Teamwork


The core values are relevant to everything we do at Jesmond Gardens including our safeguarding. It is the whole school community who are responsible for safeguarding in school and each staff member should always consider what is in the best interest of the children. All staff receive regular training as well as being familiar with all policies and procedures, encouraged to be professionally curious and raise any concerns.


Staff members working with children are advised to maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned. When concerns about the welfare of a child, staff members should always act in the best interests of the child’
