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), Louise Maddison (Inclusion Leader), Jamie Honywood (Cover Teacher) and Carol Charge (Teaching & Learning Lead)

Our Safeguarding Governor is Helen Seear. Helen leads safeguarding on behalf of our governing body. Part of Helen’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 Steve Hugo (Executive Business Manager). He keeps this record updated and ensures all of the necessary qualifications and documents are in place.
