We ALL have a duty of care to ensure ALL of our children are safe.
In school, we do this by making sure that everyone who comes into the building is suitable for working with children. We also work hard to minimise risk in the grounds and building.
If we have concerns about the safety of any children, we follow the procedures outlined in our Child Protection Policy. Parents are welcome to read this policy on this website. It outlines how we deal with any issues when we think children may not be safe, including how we would act if we felt children were not safe at home.
All concerns are recorded and handed to a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and the Designated Safeguarding Team.
As a team we decide how to deal with a concern. This would usually involve speaking to parents or people from other agencies such as health or social care.
If you have any concerns about the wellbeing or safety of a child, please speak to a member of the Safeguarding team.
