As Professionals working with children we need to be aware of the risks some children meet in their everyday lives. The key areas of risk are: physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse and sexual abuse. We must recognise our important role and our responsibility to recognise children at risk.
Our aim is to ensure a safe, secure environment for all children in our care. Children on occasions can disclose information about events in their lives to an adult in school. If the nature of the disclosure warrants it, the Child Protection Liaison Officer has the legal obligation to inform the Child Protection team within Social Services of the child’s disclosure. The designated safeguarding officers are Mrs Pengelly and Mrs Budd. The designated safeguarding governor is Mr Ravikumar Hanumanthaiah.
