Designated Safeguarding Lead:

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead:
Mrs Cathy Dart (Headteacher)
At our school, we consider the safeguarding of our children to be of paramount importance. Therefore, everyone on our site must be responsible for safeguarding and protecting children, and aware of our procedures.
If you have a safeguarding or child protection concern about a child, discuss your concerns with the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Connie Griffin, or in her absence, with the deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Cathy Dart, as soon as possible, before the child leaves for the day. It is important that the child is not sent home at the end of the day without taking the right protective action.
If you have a concern about a member of staff, discuss your concern with the headteacher, Cathy Dart. If you have a concern about the headteacher, discuss it with the chair of governors, Sandie Boniface. The staff at reception will help locate them for you if needed.
As part of our commitment to keeping our children safe and healthy, we deliver sessions alongside our PSHCE program using the NSPCC's PANTS resources. If you would like more information on this, you can read about the PANTS rules here.
