The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Sarah Gardner. She is also the Lead trainer for the school. Mrs Gardner works closely with the School Business Manager, Gill Lock, to ensure appropriate checks are made when interviewing new staff and recruiting. The DSL meets regularly with the Safeguarding Governor, Kelly Mahon, to check policy and procedures in school.
As a school we take safeguarding extremely seriously. It is fully embedded in everything we do here at school. We discuss safeguarding at every staff meeting, SLT meeting and TA meeting. Staff are trained regularly on latest guidance and any changes to legislation as well as having their Generalist Safeguarding every 3 years. Safeguarding is at the centre of everything we do.
Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH)
