SAFEGUARDING

Introduction

In order to ensure the safety of all children in our care, we are required to follow the Child Protection Procedures as agreed by the Local Education Authority. We will endeavour to share with parents/guardians any concerns we may have regarding any injuries noted or other specific issues regarding the welfare of their child. We will keep a record of any concerns raised and will share them with the parents/guardians if it is appropriate to do so.

We do have a duty to refer to Social Care if we suspect a child is at risk of significant harm. If we make a referral to Social Care we will inform the parents/guardians concerned; unless to do so would place the child at increased risk of significant harm. Our first concern will always be the welfare of the child.

We will also advise the designated officer of the Local Education Authority (LADO) if there were concerns about the actions of an adult in a position of trust. (Please note that in some areas this role has been renamed to Designated Officer For Allegations or DOFA)

We have a copy of The White Horse Federation Safeguarding Policy and Procedures  in the office if you wish to see it. Our child protection co-ordinators are Anna Ballance (Designated Safeguarding Lead), Gemma Penny (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead & Acting Designated Lead in Anna’s absence), Emily Holloway (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead) and Sky Graefe (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead)

Prevent Duty & Educate Against Hate

As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child.

Messages of hate can take many forms. Extremist groups use them to recruit young people. There is a website where you will find information to help parents, teachers and school leaders to understand the issues and protect children in our community.
