Safeguarding

Safeguarding, and promoting the welfare of children, is everyone's responsibility.  By sharing concerns we can all help to keep children safe.

Our safeguarding policy can be found here.  A paper copy is available free of charge from the office.

What to do if you have a concern

As a school community, we play an important role in helping to keep children safe from abuse and neglect and getting the right support for children and families when needed.

 

Safeguarding is central to the well-being of our children.

If you are concerned about a child then please speak to the Designated Safeguard Lead (DSL).

 

You do not need to know for certain that a child is being abused or neglected.  If you have any concerns, however small they may be, then please speak to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs).  By sharing information with the right people, we can all help to protect and care for the children in our school.

What to do if you need help

If you need information and support then please do let us know - we may be able to help directly or signpost you to another organisation that can support you.

There is information about sources of help and support on our Useful Links page.

We use the NSPCC resources in our teaching about staying safe.  The video below is a great way of starting a conversation with younger children.  If you would like more ideas or have any questions please contact Mrs Mead who is our DSL and subject leader for Life Skills.
