Safeguarding at Woodeaton Manor School 

Protecting the well-being of all of our pupils is the most important job we do. To this end, the Governing Body and every member of staff employed at Woodeaton Manor, takes seriously it’s responsibility under section 11 of the Children Act and duties under ‘working together’ to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We work together with other agencies to ensure the best arrangements exist within our school to identify, and support those children who are suffering harm or likely to suffer harm. 

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children refers to the process of protecting pupils from abuse or neglect, preventing the impairment of their health or development, ensuring that pupils grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe, effective and nurturing care and undertaking that role so as to enable our pupils to have optimum life chances and enter into adulthood successfully. 

Rebecca Shaw is our Designated Safeguarding Lead. 

Nerys Wilkinson is our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead. 

Clare Robertson is our Nominated Safeguarding Governor.

Anne Peake, our educational psychologist, is a Local Authority Safeguarding trainer and as such is able to offer training to all staff in our school, other schools in our partnership and the Local Authority. 

Simon Bishop, as the Headteacher, ensures that the safeguarding and child protection policies and procedures are implemented and followed by all staff. He also ensures that all staff feel able to raise concerns about poor or unsafe practice and that such concerns are handled sensitively and in accordance with the school’s whistle blowing procedures. 

The policy and practices at Woodeaton Manor have been developed in accordance with the principles established by the child Act 1989; and in line with the following: 

  • ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ 2021 
  • ‘Working together to Safeguard children 2018’ 
  • Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board guidelines 


The school has an extensive range of safeguarding related policies, the titles of which can be found on the school website. If you would like a copy of any of the policies, then please contact the school office. 

The protection of children is not just the job of a school; we all have a responsibility. I would urge you to be vigilant and report any concerns or observations that cause you to feel troubled – the damage caused by abuse is life changing.
