The safeguarding of pupils is a part of every member of staff’s job description at Hallaton Primary School and they are supported through regular training and clear procedures and policies. Our policies are based on Leicestershire County Council models which are regularly updated in line with the latest statutory guidance.
The school’s senior designated safeguarding lead (DSL) is the Headteacher. She is supported in the role by two deputy DSLs; our School Business Manager and our After School Club Manager. If you have concerns about a child, please make contact with one of the members of staff below via the school office.

What is Prevent?
Prevent is part of the UK’s strategy for countering terrorism and aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. The strategy addresses all forms of terrorism across the extremism spectrum; from extreme far-right to Daesh or Al-Qaeda inspired groups and from domestic to international terrorism.
The Prevent strategy focusses on three key areas:
- To respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote these views
- Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and make sure that they are given the right help and support
- Work in partnership with sectors and institutions (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address.
The Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015, places a duty on local authorities and statutory bodies to have ‘due regard’ to safeguard vulnerable individuals from being drawn into terrorism. This is known as the Prevent Duty and our school has a responsibility to do this.
Prevent is part of the Hallaton School's safeguarding objectives to keep vulnerable children and adults safe from harm and exploitation.
