Safeguarding Pupils

The school follows clear safeguarding policies, which ensure the safety of the pupils within our care. All staff and volunteers at the school are DBS checked and national Safer Recruitment regulations are strictly followed in appointing all staff. Health and Safety policies are in place and risk assessments are carried out rigorously, both with regard to events and activities within school and those carried out off-site. Designated staff are trained first aiders and all school minibus drivers have to undertake specialist training and undergo minibus testing.

Within the school, three senior members of staff are Designated Safeguarding Leads  (Helen Porter, Sharon Blair Burke and Lucy Radford) and work closely with families, social services, and Children’s Disability Teams to ensure that our pupils are not at risk. All staff have been trained in child protection and safeguarding procedures and undergo regular refresher training.

Our safeguarding policy is shown below.
