WHO IS THE SCHOOL'S DESIGNATED SAFEGUARDING LEAD (DSL)?
The school has a team of Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs).
Mrs Lucy Howe (DSL)
Mrs Alison Kay (Deputy DSL)
Other trained DSLs: Miss Hogborne, Miss Sired and Mr Williams
The appointed DSL is the school's Headteacher, Mrs Lucy Howe.
In her absence, the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Alison Kay takes the DSL role.
In the absence of both the Head and Deputy Headteacher, one of the other trained DSLs is able to respond to and support school staff in any safeguarding matter.
All school staff know how to report concerns and are aware of the signs of abuse and neglect. Every raised concern is always addressed and/or investigated. The school works closely with other professionals because we understand that, in order to gain insight into children's needs, a multi agency approach is essential.
