Keeping children safe is always our first priority.  We follow the latest guidance from the Department of Education and Dorset County Council.  We work closely with external organisations, such as Dorset and Bournemouth social care teams, Christchurch partnership zone, Dorset Police and the NHS to protect all our children.


We therefore regularly update our policies and constantly remind staff.  It is always an agenda item at our Governors’ meetings.  Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.


Please read our policy below.  If you need to speak to someone about any concerns which you have, please contact the school office and they will arrange the appropriate meeting.  We have 4 designated (trained) safeguarding leads in school: Mr Ruffle, Mr Croutear, Mrs Kelly and Mrs Sibbald.  We also offer ELSA and nurture support with our Inclusion team.
