The appointed DSL is the school's headteacher, Mr Andrew Shore.
In his absence, the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Chris Bristow takes the DSL role.
In the absence of both the Head and Deputy Headteachers, Miss Hogbourne (Senior Teacher), Mr Goodchild and Miss Sired, all Team Leaders, will be available at all times to respond to concerns.
All staff know how to report concerns and are aware of the signs of abuse and neglect. All concerns are always addressed and/or investigated.
