Safeguarding children

We believe that one of the key roles of our school is to provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of every individual child in our care, so that they grow up secure, confident and independent.
t is clear, therefore, that the health, safety and well-being of all the children in our care are of paramount importance. Our pupils have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability.
We recognise that all staff members have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm.
The first point of contact for anyone who has a concern about the safety and well-being of a pupil is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The Designated Safeguarding Leads are:

Mr R Vaughan, Headteacher. 
Revision and update training 9 February 2016 and 24 February 2018
DSL Forum 2 November 2017

Mrs L Halling
Revision and update training 18 February 2017 and 27 November 2018

The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is:
Mrs J Bowen
Revision and update training 27 September 2016 and 25 April 2018
