Larklands Infant School

Reach for the moon, even if you miss you will land among the stars



Safeguarding is our main priority.


Our vision at Larklands is to provide a school where children, parents, staff, governors and community work together to offer a welcoming, caring, stimulating and safe environment for every individual. We endeavour to celebrate our achievements together as a school community with each person being valued and respected.

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn and develop in a school environment that is safe and secure; here at Larklands Infant and Nursery  School, we work extremely hard to offer an environment for children, where risks are minimised and well managed, and children are protected from harm and abuse.

Our policy is reviewed regularly by the governing body and it applies to all staff, governors, students and volunteers working in our school. All adults in school read and agree to follow the following documents: Larklands Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, Keeping Children Safe in Education and Working Together to Safeguard Children as well as having regular annual training from the Local Authority.

We have policies and procedures in place to make sure we keep children safe and we may ask you questions from time to time about your child's welfare. Please understand it is our job to do this. 


Safeguarding at Larklands Infant and Nursery School means:


  • Safeguarding children and adults.
  • Having a culture of listening and noticing.
  • Hearing and responding to the children's voice.
  • Getting to know families.
  • Having a culture of vigilance.
  • Being professionally curious.
  • Focusing on anti-bullying.
  • Communicating effectively with children, families, staff, governors, other schools and agencies.
  • Understanding legislation.
  • Having policies and procedures in place, understood and followed by all.
  • Constantly assessing our practice and being up to date with training and advice.
  • Always thinking it could happen here.
