Success is an Attitude!
Staff Governors


The Chalfonts Community College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of all students and expects all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment. We strive to ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support all stakeholders within the Chalfonts Community.

The Chalfonts Community College Safeguarding Team:



  • Safeguarding Officer: Mr J Howard

  • Safeguarding Officer: Ms S Jones

  • Safeguarding Officer: Mrs P Procopi

  • Safeguarding Officer: Mrs C Whitehead

  • Mr S Dennis is our Safeguarding Link Governor and can be contacted through the school office.

The Chalfonts Community College has policies and procedures in place to deal effectively with child protection and safeguarding issues, which include tackling radicalisation and extremism, together with recording and monitoring processes (via CPOMS). There are a number of related policies and procedures linked to safeguarding, some of which are a statutory requirement and some are considered to be best practice in order to support us with our collective responsibility of Keeping Children Safe in Education (2022). 

Our policy sets out a clear and consistent framework for safeguarding and promotes the welfare, both physically and emotionally, of every pupil in line with relevant safeguarding legislation and the DfE’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (September 2022). It meets the statutory requirement for schools to have in place a Child Protection Policy and Procedures and defines the process and procedures that The Chalfonts Community College has in place to ensure all children are kept safe and protected from harm and that all the adults in our school are clear of their role and responsibilities.

Safeguarding determines the actions we at Chalfonts take to keep children safe and protect them from harm in all aspects of their life. As a school we recognise that  ‘it could happen here’  indeed ‘it does happen here’ and therefore we are continually being proactive to ensure that every member of the Chalfonts community is proactive in their responsibility to Safeguard each member of the Chalfonts community. The most important thing that we ask is that people talk to us. If your child is concerned about safety, well-being, either of themselves or a friend, they should talk to someone such as a parent, a member of staff at the College, including our dedicated Safeguarding and Pastoral Team, Year Leaders, and pastoral support.
