Safeguarding Children

 

Our Designated Lead for Safeguarding Children (DSL) is Mr Phillips. He is supported by two Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads; Mrs Poole who is our Deputy Headteacher and Mrs Sheard who is our Pupil & Parent Support Manager. In addition, we have a Nominates Safeguarding Governor, who ensures school policies and practice are robustly implemented, this is Mrs Walton.

the main work of a Safeguarding Lead is to:

    1. Make sure all staff are aware how to raise safeguarding concerns
    2. Ensure all staff understand the symptoms of child abuse and neglect
    3. Refer any concerns to social care
    4. Monitor children who are the subject of child protection plans
    5. Maintain accurate and secure child protection records
