Duty to Child Protection & Safeguarding

In line with the Children’s Act (1989) it is the duty of the school to contact outside agencies such as the police, social services or other investigative agencies, as a constructive measure, where they are concerns that a child may have been harmed or be in danger of harm.  The overriding duty of care in all circumstances is to the child.

Should parents have a concern that a child may have been harmed or be in danger of harm they should contact Mrs N Milhavy-Jones  (Interim Head of School) as the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or, in her absence, Mrs K Jackson (Interim Executive Headteacher) or Mrs McHale (Foundation Stage Co-ordinator) as  Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads. Information is also available on the Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children’s Board website.

Please find below the school policy for Safeguarding.
