Chevening (St Botolph’s) C.E. Primary School is a community and all those directly connected (staff, volunteers, governors, parents, families and pupils) have an essential role to play in making it safe and secure. Chevening (St Botolph’s) C.E. Primary School recognises our statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We recognise the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to be safe and feel safe.
In our school children are respected and encourage to talk openly.
Our school core safeguarding principles are:
Key Safeguarding Contacts:
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Karen Minnis (Headteacher)

Safeguarding Governor: Joseph Devine
If you need to speak to a Safeguarding Lead, please ask for them via the School Office on 01732 452895.
April 2020 update: At this unprecedented time, we are aware that a number of our families and friends are experiencing loss and bereavement. We have tried to gather our usual resources together, so we can signpost parents/carers and older children to sources of help, advice and comfort.
Please see the list of websites below, as well as the two documents updated by Mr Qureshi. Some of the websites have information specific to COVID-19, as well as general information about grieving. Normally, we would be lending our supply of books to families to use, but at this time, it's probably better to seek online versions or alternatives. The list of book titles covers all ages, including adults.
