Our safeguarding and child protection policy is below. Please note that it is compliant with 'Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2019' which is the DFE guidance. It also takes account of the 'Prevent' duty June 2015, which seeks to tackle anti- extremism.
Our Designated Lead for safeguarding is Mrs Lafferty - Jenkins. Our deputy lead is Mrs Padfield. Mrs Bartlett and Mrs Jones are also fully trained.
If you have any concerns about safeguarding please speak to a member of staff, who will help you. Don't delay if you have a concern. Share it with one of us.
As a school we work in close partnership with the Family Partnership Zone, North Dorset. This team can provide advice, support and deliver workshops that offer strategies for many aspects of parenting. Donna Lane visits the school every term to offer drop in sessions for parents. There are Parenting groups that also run in the local area. Please speak to a member of staff if you would like help or advice.
There are lots of questions you might have about safeguarding and the school. Please read the leaflet and speak to the Designated lead for Safeguarding for more information.
We teach the children in school how to get the help they need. We have playground leaders and worry boxes too. The children have lessons using the Childline resources, NSPCC visitors and Life Education Van lessons.
