Our Academy


Great Coates Primary is committed to safeguarding and ensuring the welfare of all our pupils.

To achieve this, we have systems in place which are designed to:

  • Create and maintain a safe learning environment.
  • Identify child welfare concerns and take appropriate action.
  • Use the curriculum to enable our children to develop ‘keep safe’ strategies.
  • Operate safer recruitment and selection procedures.

All staff have a responsibility to safeguard our pupils, however the main point of contacts at the school are:

  • Emma Emson – Designated Safeguarding Lead and Principal
  • Kelly Winn – Designated Safeguarding Lead and Assistant Principal
  • Sharon Billingham – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and Learning Mentor

Should you have any safeguarding concerns about your own child, or any of our children at Great Coates Primary School, please make contact with the school or other appropriate agency details of which can be found below.
