Glebe Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our pupils. All pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying our safeguarding processes.
If you are ever concerned about the safety or wellbeing of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead or contact the Children's Access Team (CAT).
Harrow's golden number for the CAT:
020 8901 2690

The CAT is a group of key professionals at the Civic Centre, with experience across a range of children's services, who will respond to enquiries relating to children, young people and families in a faster, more efficient and joined-up way.
On weekends, bank holidays and between 5pm-9am during the week, the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) social worker is available for emergency assistance: 020 8424 0999
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the Designated Safeguarding Lead as soon as possible on the same day.
If a member of staff has concerns which relate to the actions or behaviour of another member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then this will be reported to the Designated Safeguarding Lead in confidence, who will refer the matter to the Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) who will consider what action to take.
We have policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our child protection policy.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are:
Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Sharon Ives (Deputy Headteacher)
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Ms Lisa F Biggin (Interim Headteacher)
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Farihah Anwar-Simmons (Headteacher - Maternity Leave)
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Prerna Patalia (Childcare and Family Support Team Leader)
