When concerned for the safeguarding of a pupil in any other case, please complete a Record of Concern at once and hand it to the DSL.
Copies of Guidance for Recording Concerns about children and young people including Headteacher/DSL response and actions taken, Record of Concern (ROC) and BODYMAP are available from the signing-in point, staffroom and headteacher’s office.
Please raise any concerns regarding the effectiveness of filtering and monitoring directly and promptly with the headteacher.
Governors and Visitors
There is a clearly marked signing-in point by the front door, and all visitors must sign in and out of the site. There is a separate book for governors. Either governors lanyards or visitors badges must be worn at all times.
In September, every child completes a helping hand, identifying adults who can support them, developing necessary protective behaviours. It is then revisited termly.
