SAFEGUARDING INFORMATION ;-

Our main duty and aim is to ensure that all children are safe at all times. Every day, we are privileged to be able to spend time with your children and we build strong relationships with them based on respect and trust. When concerned about the welfare of a child, staff members are legally obliged to act in the interests of the child.

We are committed to ensuring that all our children and young people are safe and feel safe and as a result we follow procedures set down by Child Protection for West Midlands / Dudley Safeguarding People Partnership.

If you are concerned about the safety of a child, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a Safeguarding Lead Claire Sharp or Deputy Mike Klymko or the relevant safeguarding lead in school 

Alternately you can call Dudley Children's Social Care Team:

0300 555 0050 - 9.00 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday

0300 555 8574 - out of hours Emergency Duty Team

Advice can also be sought from the NSPCC - www.nspcc.org.uk

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and if you think a child is in immediate danger you should call the police.

All staff take part in regular safeguarding training. During the training, all staff are made aware of the latest legislation and reminded of their responsibility to ensure the welfare of all children. Regular training enables staff to identify signs of mistreatment, which may include indications of unreasonable physical chastisement or neglect. This ensures they can identify and highlight children who may be in need of help or protection and refer any concerns to the teachers responsible for safeguarding in the schools.

If we are sufficiently concerned about the welfare of a child, we are obliged to refer the matter onto the Dudley Safeguarding People Partnership who then lead any further investigation into the matter with our assistance or the involvement of social workers, the police or other bodies as they see fit.

We seek to perform our obligation to recognise, record and report safeguarding issues and we have a clear procedure to follow when we are concerned about the welfare of a child.
