The school's Safeguarding Team is currently as follows:
|Name||Role in School||Safeguarding Team Role|
|Principal||Head of Safeguarding Team|
|Vice-Principal||Designated Teacher for Child Protection|
|SENCO||Deputy-Designated Teacher for Child Protection|
|Governor||Designated Governor for Child Protection|
|Governor||Chairperson - Board of Governors|
Whilst the Safeguarding Team has overall responsibility for safeguarding duties, the protection and safeguarding of children remains the duty of all staff. Staff receive regular training on Safeguarding & Child Protection, in line with current guidance. The school follows all statutory duties and guidance from The Department of Education and Education Authority as appropriate.
If you have a concern regarding a child, please speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team immediately or contact Gateway (information leaflet below). The school has also produced its own leaflet as a quick reference guide.
The school has recently reviewed its Child Protection Policy and procedures and does so on a regular basis. A copy of the Child Protection policy can be requested free at any time from the designated teacher Mrs L Spence, and in her absence the deputy designated teacher Mrs McKinney.
The following leaflets from Southern Health & Social Care Trust Gateway Service may also be useful.
