Focused on the future

As a school we recognise the important role that the whole community plays in promoting the health, safety and well-being of all our children. In view of our relationships with children and their families, staff need to be particularly alert to any signs of possible abuse or neglect. They have a legal duty to pass on any concerns to the Designated Senior Leader (DSL) for Safeguarding (Headteacher - Helen Proctor) or the Deputy DSL (Deputy Head - Lindsay Bennett). These concerns must be reported to the appropriate agency. The school does not have any role to play in an investigation of child protection issues. However, it must co-operate with a range of agencies in any investigation or monitoring. There are clear systems to follow in these instances. Please refer to our school safeguarding policy for more information.
