Where Children Flourish


At Rose Hill Primary School we treat safeguarding as our highest priority, ensuring that all children in our care are safe and secure at all times.  We work with parents, the Local Authority and other professionals to maintain children's safety.  All members of staff are responsible for safeguarding but in addition we have a number of people with designated safeguarding responsibilities.


Jane Birchenough is our Home School Link worker and our Designated Safeguarding Lead.  To contact Jane please phone 01865 777937 or email office.2531@rose-hill.oxon.sch.uk



 Paul James is our Shadow Governing Board Safeguarding Representative.



We have two other safeguarding officers: Sue Vermes (our Headteacher) and Sana Malik (our Assistant Headteacher).

Staff with designated responsiblities for safeguarding undertake regular specialist training.  All staff members and anyone who volunteers with us undertakes training in child protection and this training is refreshed every three years in line with Oxfordshire County Council's safeguarding policy.  We also undertake comprehensive background checks on all staff and any volunteers for whom this is required (in accordance with OCC policy).
