Background Slideshow


Safeguarding is one of our key functions as a school. Through our work with children and a range of external agencies, we put the welfare and wellbeing of children at the heart of everything we do and we expect ALL staff, children and visitors to take an active part in helping to keep our community safe. Below you can find out about who our Safeguarding Leaders are, and the policies and procedures we have in place to promote a safe and happy childhood for our children.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are:


  • Lead : Angus Marriott [Headteacher]
  • Deputy : Lorraine Shaw [SENCo & Inclusion Lead]
  • Deputy: Sarah Theunissen [Deputy Headteacher]
  • Safeguarding Governor: Fiona Armstrong
  • Chair of Governors: Graham Morrison

Visitors to Chieveley


As part of the school’s ongoing Safeguarding Policy, we have implemented a colour-coded lanyard approach for all visitors, shown below.


On arrival at the school, all visitors must report to reception where you will be asked to sign in and, where applicable, provide ID prior to the issue of the appropriately coloured lanyard.


All visitors should then familiarise themselves with “Information for Visitors”  prior to entering the school.

  • A DBS checked and safeguarding trained individual who is able to work with pupils without need for further supervision (e.g Reading Support and advisory services such as CALT)
  • In the eyes of the pupils, these people are teachers and can be approached to discuss matters of concern at any time.
  • A Governor of the school, who has been DBS checked.
  •  In the eyes of the pupils, these people are teachers and can be approached to discuss matters of concern at any time.
  • A non-DBS checked person (such as a contractor)
  • Regular contractors will have provided their DBS status, however will still be given a red lanyard.
  • Pupils have been told that they should not speak with these individuals and should find an appropriate member of staff. 


We take the welfare of our pupils very seriously and if during your visit you see or hear something that you do not consider to be appropriate, you should report the incident to a designated member of staff (listed at the top of this page), however you must never get involved in the incident.
