All staff who work at the school have a role to play in safeguarding and receive formal training every three years, although safeguarding items are regularly on the agenda during briefings and Pastoral Team meetings. The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Deputies (DDSLs) receive more regular training and are trained regularly on current and contextual safeguarding issues.
Any of our Team can be contacted through the school office – by telephone or by using email to email@example.com
