Woodridge Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the physical, mental and emotional welfare of every pupil, both inside and outside of the school premises. We implement a whole-school preventative approach to managing safeguarding concerns, ensuring that the wellbeing of pupils is at the forefront of all action taken.
Our policy sets out a clear and consistent framework for delivering this promise, in line with safeguarding legislation and statutory guidance. It will be achieved by:
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Headteacher, Colin Dowland. In the absence of the DSL, child protection matters will be dealt with by the Deputy DSL, Deputy Headteacher, Laura Monro. Nicky Wheatcroft and Sasha Sperber are also Level 3 trained Safeguarding Officers.
The designated Safeguarding Governor is Chair of Governors, Louise Ross.
