Ditton CE Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. Strict child protection and recruitment procedures operate and all appointments are subject to satisfactory references and enhanced checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
Recently there have been important updates to the safeguarding duties for schools, including the statutory duty to report HBV, CSE and PREVENT.
If an adult has a concern about any aspect of the welfare or well-being of a child they should inform a Designated Safeguarding Lead (Headteacher – Miss A Coulbault) and record it as a concern.
Mrs K Moon and Mrs R Campbell are also DSL’s and able to support with a concern if the Headteacher is not available.
Everyone should listen; a child will disclose to a person who they trust. As a staff team we are confident in recognising, referring, responding and recording safeguarding incidents.
