Safeguarding

At Heathmere, safeguarding underpins everything that we do; keeping the children safe is our top priority. We are a school where all members of the community work together so that children learn and achieve their full potential in a calm, safe and caring environment.

We work in conjunction with the Wandsworth Safeguarding Children Partnership

The Designated Safeguarding Leads are:

Emma Lewis – Headteacher

Vacancy – Family Link Worker

Nana Kennedy – Assistant Head leading on Inclusion and SENCO

The curriculum and wider ethos at Heathmere is designed to help the children to understand how to stay safe. Some of these ways include:

  • PATHS 
  • Online Safety
  • Relationships Education
  • Personal, Social and Health Education
  • Assemblies

The staff at Heathmere all undertake safeguarding training. The governors have oversight of all of the school’s safeguarding policies and processes, including those relating to recruitment.
