KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE
All schools are required to ensure they adhere to statutory safeguarding procedures in order to keep children safe in and out of school and to promote their welfare.
Where it is believed that a child is suffering from, or is at risk of significant harm, our school will refer all cases of suspected abuse to Children's Social Care.
In our school, the following people are responsible for ensuring that statutory safeguarding procedures are followed, in order to keep children safe:
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Julie Goodwin (Headteacher)
Back-Up Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Andrea Loughran (Deputy Headteacher)
Governor with resposibility for Safeguarding: Mrs NIcki Detko (CHair of Governors)
The following policies are key documents in informing our practice as a school and details what actions school must take when a child has suffered or is likely to suffer harm, including our school Child Protection (Safeguarding)Policy which reflects the changes to 'Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018'
These key policies are freely available from the DfE website and by following the links below:
