Director of Safeguarding - Ms Willis
Deputy DSL & Lead Practitioner - Ms Costin
Deputy Headteacher & Deputy DSL - Ms Campbell
The school will ensure that all staff have updated knowledge about safeguarding so that we can:
- Establish and maintain an environment where children feel secure, able to talk, and are listened to
- Ensure students know there are adults in the school whom they can approach if they are worried
- Include opportunities in the main curriculum as well as through PSHE, Tutor Time, Assembly or LEAP Day activities so that all pupils develop the skills to recognise and stay safe from abuse.
We follow the procedures set out by the Bromley Safeguarding Children Board and the London Safeguarding Children Board and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Education.
If you are worried about the safety or welfare of a student, please contact the Safeguarding Team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
