An overview of safeguarding in school including key policies, procedures and multi-agency working.

If you have any questions, queries or concerns in relation to safeguarding then please contact Kate Beer, Woodsetton School Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

Because of our day-to-day contact with children and young people, Woodsetton staff are particularly well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in children’s behaviour or their failure to develop. We need, therefore ‘to be alert to the possibility of abuse occurring, be aware of the procedures to be followed and have the confidence to follow those procedures'.

The policies below apply to all Woodsetton staff, governors and volunteers and provide an overview of systems and processes in our school.

These policies are underpinned by Keeping Children Safe in Education, 2018. This has been translated into a number of different languages. These can be found here kcsietranslate.lgfl.net
