Safeguarding

We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.

We make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to. We maintain an attitude of “it could happen here” where safeguarding is concerned.

The school has a comprehensive policy so that we can provide staff, volunteers and governors with the framework they need in order to keep children safe and secure in our school and to inform parents and guardians how we will safeguard their children whilst they are in our care.

If anyone has any concerns regarding the safeguarding and well-being of children at our school these should be brought to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) who is Mr Dave Collins (Executive Head teacher) The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are:

  • Mrs Karen Roberts (Interim Deputy Head and Inclusion Manager)
  • Mrs Margaret Young (Interim Assistant Head teacher)
  • Ms Rhiannon Stokes (Senior Leader)

All members of staff within the school have completed all the relevant Child Protection training.

Further details and information is contained within our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy available on our policies page.

If you have a concern about a child outside of school or feel unable to talk to a DSL at school, then you should contact Children’s Services at Hammersmith and Fulham Council or the London Borough of Brent depending on where the child resides. Anyone can contact Children’s Services if they are worried that a child may be at risk.

Each council’s children’s services are told about cases of possible abuse or neglect by professionals and members of the public. They also hear from parents needing support, other family members concerned about a child’s welfare and sometimes children themselves.  They can help with any queries you may have about support for children in your borough. Regardless of who contacts them, they take the information seriously.
