Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.  Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding Children. 

To ensure we fulfil this responsibility at Melbourn Village College, all professionals are trained to ensure their approach is child-centred; what is in the best interest of the child at all times.  No single professional can have a full picture of a child’s needs and circumstances. If children and families are to receive the right help at the right time everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns and the sharing of information, on a 'need to know' basis. The Child Protection Team will ensure the information is collated and dealt with appropriately. 

The child protection team at Melbourn Village College is:

John Barnes – Lead designated person, Assistant Principal (inclusion)

Anna Ghale – SENCO

May Deal – Pastoral Manager

Caroline Deadman – Pupil Premium/Young Carers Champion


In an increasingly digital world it’s important that our students, parents and carers feel that their information is protected and safe. This is why we have a robust Data Protection Policy. Read it in the attachment below:
