Safeguarding

We recognise that everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.  We recognise the significant and important role we play in identifying concerns early and providing help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. 

We have very stringent and rigorous procedures and systems in school that support safeguarding and these are regularly updated with all staff.

If staff or parents have concerns they have a duty to inform the Designated Safeguarding Lead:

Mr Griffiths – DSL

or in their absence

Mrs Clark or Mrs O’Brien –  DDSL

The designated DSL and DDSLs are responsible for:

Referring a child if there are concerns about possible abuse, to the Local Authority, and acting as a focal point for staff to discuss concerns.  Referrals should be made in writing using a professional referral form, following a telephone call to the Contact Centre.  However, all staff are aware that anyone can make a referral.

Please see our safeguarding policy for further information

Parentapps Connect
