Safeguarding

Safeguarding Statement

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child who comes to Crowcombe and Stogumber Schools you have a duty to report those concerns and safeguard the child.  You are not expected to make any judgements on whether it is abuse or not.

 

The DSLs carry out intensive training along with social workers, police and medical staff in the County.  It is the role of the DSL to decide if child abuse is a consideration or if the information received can be held on file. 

Visiting or joining our school

 

A member of staff ensures that the school gates are kept locked at specific times during the school day. All visitors access the site via an intercom and are asked to report to the main office to sign in. Please be mindful that for everybody's safety, identification procedures will be carried out.

 

All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practice and all necessary checks are carried out.
