Safeguarding in School

We take our responsibilities in this area extremely seriously. All adults who work in school are cleared through the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) before they can start to work or volunteer. All our staff and governors receive regular training on child protection and safeguarding and we have a number of policies in the school that we adhere to in order to ensure the safety and well-being of all the children and staff in our school.

Mrs Gray (Acting Headteacher) is the Lead for Safeguarding and the Designated Teacher for Child Protection
Mrs Griffiths is also responsible for Safeguarding and Child Protection
Mrs Akehurst (Chair of Governors) is the Responsible Governor

All can be contacted via the school office.

Our Safeguarding Overview summarises the actions we take and the policies that are available (and that may cover specific areas in more detail).
