What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is defined as:
Where a child is suffering significant harm, or is likely to do so, action should be taken to protect that child.
Our school takes its responsibility for safeguarding very seriously. Staff are encouraged to report any concerns about the wellbeing of our pupils to the Designated Safeguarding Officer or one of the deputies.
Designated Safeguarding Officer: Gary Hobbs (Headteacher)
Deputy Safeguarding Officer: Sarah Penfold
Safeguarding Governor: Linda Hyde
If you are concerned about the welfare of a child, you are encouraged to report it to one of the above or to ring Somerset Direct on 0300 1232224.
In our school, adults attend safeguarding update training every year and the safeguarding officers receive external updates on a termly basis.
