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.
Billy Mc Inally, our Headteacher and Richard Farr our Chair of Governors have also completed DSL training, giving them the ability to lead the team effectively. Child Protection and safeguarding are routinely discussed as part of their Kent termly meetings.
Martyn Nash our Head of Care acts as our operational lead for all matters linked to Child Protection. The DSL team meet at least once a term, to review our practice in this key area, ensuring we have a standardised approach across the team to any CP issue..
All Designated Safeguarding Leads are fully trained by KCC and receive updates to their training annually.
