The Governing Body takes seriously its responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering.
We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and Governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern.
All staff believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical, spiritual and moral development of the individual child.
All members of staff, Governors and regular volunteers are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked and are trained regularly in Child Protection & Safeguarding.
We currently have two Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL), Mrs Helen Austin (Headteacher) and Mrs Kate Chenery (Deputy Headteacher). If you have any concerns about a child, please do not hesitate to talk to either DSL where you will be listened to.
