Child protection and safeguarding

THINK THE UNTHINKABLE, BELIEVE THE UNBELIEVABLE

We take the safeguarding of children very seriously and have three designated safeguard leads/deputy leads in school:

 

Miss Harris - Headteacher (DSL)

Mrs Llewellyn - Deputy Headteacher (Deputy DSL)

Miss Richards - pastoral family support worker [ Deputy DSL]

Our ELSA's, Mrs Smith and Miss Heslop also assist us with this when needed.

Mrs Lamming, leader of the preschool, is also a designate safeguard lead.

 

We also have 1 trained THRIVE practitioner who assist in supporting the emotional well being of the children, Miss Richards.  

Miss Richards is also our designate Looked After Children teacher.

 

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. Our e-safety training took place on 9th December 2015, our 'Prevent' training on October 4th , 2021, and the full safeguarding update on the  30th November 2022. 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. We 'top up' our safeguarding knowledge with the National College webinars too.
