Dulverton Primary School

Safeguarding & Child Protection

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children as the safety and protection of children is of paramount importance to everyone in this school. We work hard to create a culture of vigilance and at all times we will ensure what is best in the interests of all children.

We believe that all children have the right to be safe in our society. We recognise that we have a duty to ensure arrangements are in place for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children by creating a positive school atmosphere through our teaching and learning, pastoral support and care for both pupils and school personnel, training for school personnel and with working with parents. We teach all our children about safeguarding.

We work hard to ensure that everyone keeps careful watch throughout the school and in everything we do for possible dangers or difficulties. We want all children to feel safe at all times. We want to hear their views of how we can improve all aspects of safeguarding and from the evidence gained we put into place all necessary improvements.

Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these immediately to the Designated Safeguarding Leaders (DSLs):

Mrs K Herbert - Designated Safeguard Lead

Mrs C Robson - Deputy Safeguard Lead

Miss S Beale - Deputy Safeguard Lead

Mrs Z Ryan - Deputy Safeguard Lead

Miss E Little - Deputy Safeguard Lead

The school uses an internal system, CPOMS, to ensure any concerns are carefully and confidentially recorded, that the appropriate information is shared with staff responsible and that DSLs consult with parents and carers actively.
