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.  

Your Safeguarding Team  

Mrs L Milne – Designated Safeguarding Officer 

Miss S Foster – Child Protection Co-ordinator 

Mrs T Hayward – Safeguarding support 

Mrs Gordon – Head of Academy  

If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of any child in our school, the Designated Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Milne.  In her absence, you should contact Mrs Gordon, Mrs Hayward and Miss Foster. They can be contacted through the school office.  

The academy has a duty to inform parents that there  is a prohibition on reporting or publishing details (including on social media) that could identify anyone who is subject to an allegation.
