The ultimate responsibility for safeguarding children at Pauntley lies with Mr Tony Larner the Headteacher. Mrs Kay Selwyn (Federation of Newent Schools) is the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Safeguarding children involves child protection but also takes a wider role. Every educational setting must have a Safeguarding (Child Protection) policy, which in conjunction with other school policies (e.g. SEND, behaviour, anti-bullying) should enable pupils and staff to feel supported in a safe and caring environment.
