All staff will undergo an enhanced DBS check and it their responsibility to notify the DSL if there has been any change in their personal circumstance that make pose a threat to children.
OUR SAFEGUARDING TEAM
Every organisation has to have a “named” person for safeguarding children and young people. The Governing body has to ensure that an appropriate member of staff should take the lead. This person should have the status and authority within the school to carry out the duties of the post including committing resources and where appropriate supporting and directing staff.
At All Saints CEVA the Designated Safeguarding Lead is Emma Johnson, our Head Teacher. We also have three other members of staff who are fully trained and take the role of Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.
Within our Safeguarding and Child protection policy it is set out the process for dealing with child protection concerns. The policy is on the website but also alternatively the school can provide you with a copy; please ask at the school office.
All adults in school must have regular training to ensure that they are aware of the signs of abuse and know what to do about their concerns. They have a duty to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
All Saints has a legal duty to talk to other agencies such as Children’s Social Care and the Police if we feel that a child may be at risk of harm.
