Perhaps the single most important job we have as adults is to try and ensure that children in our care are safe and appropriately cared for. If children do not have these basic needs met, then they are unlikely to learn to their full potential. All adults who work in a school have a responsibility to safeguard young people in this respect. Any concerns that we have about the welfare and safety of a child is logged on our 'My Concern' system which allows the Designated Safeguard Leads, Miss Harris, Mrs Llewellyn and Miss Wilson to view and act on these where appropriate. If you, as a parent, also have any concerns regarding the welfare of a young child then please do call in and ask to see one of these members of staff. In addition,our child protection policy is under the 'policy' heading for you to view.
Also, you can also call the Dorset Safeguarding Service, the MASH team, on 01202 228866 - and any concerns can be treated confidentially.
