Trust Safeguarding Lead
The Stour Academy Trust Safeguarding Lead
Mrs Sarah Partridge
As Trust Safeguarding Lead I have the overall responsibility for the day-to-day oversight of safeguarding and child protection systems in our schools across the Trust.
We fully recognise the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to.
Within my role I liaise effectively and supportively with all school staff and other agencies and always in the best interests of children and families. These agencies can include Early Help, Children’s Social Care, CAMHS, Local Housing Associations and Domestic Abuse Services.
If you have a safeguarding concern about a child or an adult, or if you would like confidential advice please contact me by either ringing my office or mobile number, or by emailing me
I work with the strictest of confidentiality and will not share any information you give us without discussing this with you first.
If you, or someone you know, is at immediate risk of harm please dial 999 or contact Children’s Social Services on 03000 41 11 11
If you are a professional please contact me directly.
