Safeguarding Children is everyone’s responsibility…

Safeguarding is at the centre of all we do here at Arnesby CE Primary School. Safeguarding our children is the responsibility of all staff in our school.

We are proud to work successfully in partnership with families and professional services to support our pupils.

Our comprehensive safeguarding policy is available in our policies tab. This is supported by our anti bullying and behaviour policies, also found in the policies tab.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is the school’s headteacher Mrs R James and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs M Cox . DSL’s are trained in dealing with child abuse and safeguarding children.

Should parents or members of the public have any concerns or worries about a pupil in our school, please get in touch with the school’s DSL’s via the office on 0116 2478563 or by email

If, you are worried about a child’s safety out of school hours contact:

First Response Children’s Duty Team 0116 305 0005 (24-hour phone line)

Phone 999 if a crime is being committed or if a child is in danger

Contact Leicestershire police on 101 if you think a crime has been committed but there is no immediate danger.

Our school is part of Operation Encompass. This is a police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.
