'Let your light shine' (Matthew 5:16)



Here at Thurnham Glasson Church of England Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which is available to view here.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer(s) are the first people to speak to if you have any concerns around the welfare of a child or vulnerable adult.  If they are unavailable then please contact Mrs Joanne Aveyard in the school office. The School Governor responsible for Child Protection is Mr Peter Milston (Chair of Governors).

Operation Encompass

As part of Thurnham Glasson C of E Primary School’s commitment to keeping children safe, we are proud to be part of Operation Encompass.

In conjunction with Lancashire Police, Thurnham Glasson C of E Primary School is involved in a national initiative called “Operation Encompass”.  The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.

Following an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared.  Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff are made aware early enough to help and support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

This is a valuable initiative that means we can help and support students and their families within our school when they need us most.

The Key Adults at our school are Mrs Duncan (Headteacher & Safeguarding Lead) and Mrs Boulton  (Deputy Safeguarding Lead)  If you have any questions or wish to know more about our involvement in Operation Encompass, please do not hesitate to contact one of the Key adults on the school telephone number: 01524 751425
