Mersey Primary Academy

Child Protection Policy


Statement to Parents


At Mersey Primary Academy, the welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our academy.


We will always try to share any concerns we have with parents.  However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents.


The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart.


If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of any child in our school, the Child Protection Officer is Mrs Milne.  In her absence, you should contact Mrs Josie Curran and Miss Foster who both work closely with Mrs Louise Milne and are available on the playground each morning and after school. They can be contacted through the school office
