Langton Green Primary School takes its responsibilities for safeguarding very seriously.
At Langton Green Primary School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All members of our community (staff, volunteers, governors, parents, families and pupils) have an essential role to play in safeguarding and making sure all children are safe and secure.
If you have any safeguarding concerns or would like to find out about support available for your family, then please contact one of our Safeguarding Leads via the school office (01892 862648):
Our Designated Safeguarding Officers at Langton Green are:
Rosie Lea (SEN TA)
Alex Cornelius (Head Teacher)
Tom Maynard (Deputy Head Teacher)
For additional information, our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Online Safety Policy are available to download in the policies part of our website.

Reporting safeguarding concerns
A Designated Safeguarding Officer is available to contact every school day. Contact can be made via the school office on 01892 862648 or by emailing email@example.com, where a message can be left for a member of the Safeguarding team to make contact with you and discuss your concern.
Please understand that if you do get in touch to report a concern, our staff cannot discuss details or information regarding other children for confidentiality and GDPR reasons. However, all reports are taken very seriously and investigated fully by the team.
Out of office hours and during school holidays, if you have any immediate safeguarding concerns, please contact the Kent Front Door on 03000 41 91 91. If you think someone is in immediate danger, the best thing to do is call 999 for the emergency services.
