Create Safeguarding Statement

At Create Partnership Trust we put the safeguarding and wellbeing of the children first and expect all visitors and volunteers to do the same.


In our schools children are taught how to keep themselves safe, form positive relationships, and know who to speak to if they need help.


We work with our families and outside agencies to safeguard our pupils. Our staff have a duty of care to report any concerns, and always act in the best interests of the child.

At Greet we safeguard children by:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing the impairment of children's mental and physical health or development
  • making sure children receive safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children have the best outcomes

Overall Responsibility for Safeguarding within Create

Mark Unwin (CEO)


Our Designated Trustee for Safeguarding

Mary Higgins



Greet Primary School's Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Keeping Children Safe in Education statutory guidance.

All school staff are aware that:

  • Disclosures of abuse or harm from children may be made at any time.
  • Their role is to listen and note carefully any observation which could indicate abuse.
  • They must report any safeguarding concerns to the Designated Senior Lead (DSL) immediately or in her absence to a Deputy DSL.
  • All safeguarding concerns are recorded on CPOMS (Child Protection Online Management System).

On-Line Safety 


At Greet we fully recognise our responsibilities for safeguarding children in the digital world. We understand that that the world of technology has many positives in todays society but we also recognise that there are many risks for our children as they spend more time on-line. Safeguarding is paramount and we will always act in the best interests of the child and therefore aim to create and maintain a culture of vigilance both inside and outside of school. 


Domestic Abuse

Sadly, some of our children experience domestic abuse in their homes. In 2022 Keeping Children Safe in Education was update to reflect a change in legislation to recognise that children who live in homes where domestic abuse happens are victims of domestic abuse in their own right. 


Greet Primary School is an Operation Encompass School. Operation Encompass is a joint operation involving Birmingham Children's Trust, West Midlands Police and Birmingham City Council. It was established to help provide in-school support to children who have been present at, exposed to or involved in any domestic abuse incident. 

Right Help, Right Time

In line with Birmingham Safeguarding Children’s Board, Greet follows the “Right Help, Right Time” (RHRT) threshold guidance. This framework has provided everyone at Greet with clear advice about what to do and how to respond if a child and their family need extra help. We work with our external partners including Birmingham Children's Trust, West Midlands.


Police and health professionals. Our DSLs, have attended the required training suggested by the RHRT Multi-Agency so have embedded the RHRT guidance within the day to day practice of the school. Our staff regularly receive training so they know that the voice of the child is at the centre of their planning, decision making and service delivery.


For further information on the materials provided by RHRT, read the following documents:
