Wren Spinney is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play and school staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early. The school is expected to ensure that appropriate procedures are in place for responding to situations where it believes a child has been abused or is at risk of abuse.
At any time you may be concerned about information which suggests a child is being neglected or experiencing physical, emotional or sexual harm.
- observe physical signs
- notice changes in the child's behaviour or presentation
- pick up signs of emotional distress
- have a child disclose a harmful experience to you
Safeguarding referrals may be made direct in the following ways:
In an emergency outside office hours contact the Police on 999 or Emergency Duty team.
If you have a concern, you MUST report it - inform a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) without delay (or The Chair of Governors where appropriate).
- Make a written record (using the child's own words),
- Sign and date it
- Pass the record to a DSL immediately
At Wren Spinney our DSLs are;
|Amy March||Joanna Cliffe||Kevin Latham|
|Claire Scott||Julie Scholtz||Peter Endersby|
