The school seeks to continuously develop and improve our safeguarding policies and procedures and to instil a culture where children are confident that their concerns will be heard and acted on appropriately. Through a carefully planned curriculum, we also instil in the children the skills they need to keep themselves safe in a variety of different situations that they may face e.g. personal safeguarding, online security, stranger danger.
All members of staff are trained to level 2 in child protection and training is updated regularly in line with LSCB requirements. The Designated Safeguarding Lead and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead are trained to level 3 in child protection. Parents should feel confident to approach the DSL or Deputy DSL should they have any concerns about a child’s welfare. Appointments can be made through the school office.
