The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr Adams, Deputy Headteacher. The DSL has a legal responsibility to deal with safeguarding issues related to all students, providing advice and support to staff, liaising with the Local Authority, and working with a range of other agencies. There are six Deputy DSLs who support Mr Adams to carry out these responsibilities.
All students have the right to be safe from harm and protected from all forms of abuse. This includes all areas of life such as at home, in school, when you are with family and friends and when online. If you are being mistreated or aware of another child or young person who is, please tell someone at your earliest opportunity. In school you can speak to any member of staff who you trust or any adult at home or in your family.
If you (or another child) is in immediate danger, don’t delay call the Police on 999. Explain to them where you are, what has happened and they will send a Police officer to help you.
