We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed below.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Peter Halford (Executive Headteacher), Our Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Claire Appleby (Drake's), Mrs Katie Skinner (Otterton) and Mrs Kathryn Thompson (Otterton). Our Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Corinna Tigg.
From talking PANTS to approaching difficult issues, there are a range of tips and advice to help you keep children safe whether they’re at home, out and about or online on the NSPCC website, access it by following this link
