Our Safeguarding Team

If you are concerned about any safeguarding issues, please come and speak to one of our Safeguarding Leads.

At Portfield, all staff members are responsible for safeguarding the children at our school. However, safeguarding is led by our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Andrew Strong (Headteacher) and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Nicki Graham (Wellbeing Leader), Tom Rayment (Deputy Headteacher) and Louise Maddison (Inclusion Leader)

Our Safeguarding Governor is Ruth Campbell. Ruth leads safeguarding on behalf of our governing body. Part of Ruth’s role is to challenge our procedures and policies, ensuring that we are effectively safeguarding all of our pupils.

At School, we have a Single Central Record (SCR) to ensure all staff and volunteers have the required checks and certificates. Our Single Central Record Manager is Chantal Lushington (Business Manager). She keeps this record updated and ensures all of the necessary qualifications and documents are in place.
