Statutory guidance for safeguarding

Keeping children safe in education

 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs L Brammer

Our Assistant Safeguarding Leads are Mrs L Bourne and Mrs C Porter.

Governor with responsibility for Safeguarding – Mr M Finney (Chair)

Should none of the above staff members be available, Miss Lowe takes responsibility for safeguarding.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
