Cheam Common Junior Academy is committed to safeguarding, promoting and ensuring the well-being and safety of all pupils and expects all staff, volunteers and our school community to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.

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.

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Ms Dominique Briggs (Assistant Headteacher). Our Designated Deputy Safeguarding Leaders are: Ms Sophie Gunner (Assistant Headteacher), Ms Helen Sonemann (SENDco) and Ms Samantha Hart. Our Safeguarding Governor is Ms Jenny Rowley.

If you are concerned about a child, contact a member of our safeguarding team or Sutton's Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) tel: 0208 770 6001, and for self-harm or suicide risks, professionals can contact the Single Point of Access (SPA) for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) tel: 0203 513 3800

If a member of staff or you have 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 must be reported to one of the DSLs 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.
