Safeguarding our children is given the highest priority at Coupe Green and all our staff are regularly trained in safeguarding procedures and are aware of what to do if they are concerned about a child or adult.
You can find a copy of our Child Protection Policy below.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs J Littlewood, who is the Headteacher, and the Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mr J Burns, the Deputy Headteacher, and Mrs K Cooke. The nominated safeguarding governor is Mr A Mycock (Chair of Governors). The above mentioned people have responsibility under the procedures established by the L.E.A. for coordinating action within our school and for liaison with other agencies.
If you have any safeguarding concerns about a child at Coupe Green, please speak to one of the above named adults.
Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which ensures that a child’s school is informed, prior to the start of the next school day, that there has been an incident of Domestic Abuse to which the child or young person has been exposed, and which might then have an impact on them in school the following day.
Each school is informed of all Domestic Abuse incidents, not just those where an offence can be identified or those which are graded as high risk. The partnership recognises that all incidents of Domestic Abuse can be harmful to children and young people.
A nominated member of staff, known as a Key Adult, has been trained to liaise with the police. At Coupe Green Primary School our Key Adults are Mr Burns and Mrs Cooke. They will be able to use information that has been shared with them, in confidence, to ensure that the school makes provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families. The Key Adults will keep this information confidential, and will only share it on a need to know basis, for instance, to teaching staff for the child or young person. It will not be shared with other school students.

At Coupe Green Primary School, the wellbeing of our children and families is of the utmost importance. To support wellbeing for all, we believe that early help is key.
“Good mental health and well-being are essential for all of us to lead fulfilling
lives, to realise our full potential, to participate productively in our communities,
and to demonstrate resilience in the face of stress and adversity.” (WHO 2021)
At Coupe Green Primary School, we believe in a holistic approach to education, which supports and develops the whole child, mentally, socially and academically. For children to learn best, we believe that they need to be happy, feel safe and valued. Good mental health is developed through building resilience, confidence and self-belief; therefore, our curriculum is designed to enable this. We strive to develop a growth mindset and provide challenge at all levels, in a supportive environment, so that children can take risks and achieve their full potential.
