We have a team of Designated safeguarding leads to ensure we can cover our school 24 hours per day and at the weekend. We also have a range of colleagues working in this role to ensure we can cover all our staff.
Martyn Nash our Head of Care is our operational lead for all matters linked to Child Protection and Safeguarding. The DSL team meet at least once a term, to review our practice in this key area, ensuring we have a standardised and moderated approach across the team.
Billy Mc Inally, our Headteacher and Richard Farr our Chair of Governors have also completed DSL training, giving them the ability oversee any issues that may have arisen effectively. Child Protection and safeguarding are a standing agenda item and are routinely discussed as part of their termly 1:1 meetings.
All Designated Safeguarding Leads are fully trained by KCC and receive formal offsite updates to their training bi-annually. Their new learning is shared with colleagues through termly meetings to ensure all colleagues are abreast fo latest thinking, processes and procedures.
