We take the safeguarding of children very seriously and have three designated safeguard leads/deputy leads in school:
Miss Harris - Principal (DSL)
Mrs Llewellyn - Vice Principal (Deputy DSL)
Miss Wilson- Inclusion Lead/SENDCO (Deputy DSL)
Our ELSA's, Mrs May and Mrs Wait, also assist us with this when needed.
Mrs Ash, leader of the preschool, is also a designated safeguard lead.
As a staff, we all use an online tool, MyConcern, to report and log any concerns over children that we may have, including attendance concerns, behaviour concerns and any concerns regarding a home situation. All of our staff have had up to date training (November 2014) from a Local Authority recommended person. Our e - safety training took place on 9th December 2015, our 'Prevent' training on January 27th 2016 and the full safeguarding update on the 20th April 2016. We also have our yearly short update session each September INSET days- the most recent being September 4th, led by the Deputy DSL, Mrs Llewellyn.
