Kingshott Safeguarding Statement
Kingshott School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child or young person’s welfare is our paramount concern.
We believe that Kingshott School should provide a caring, positive safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, emotional, physical and moral development of the individual child or young person.
We have a Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place. All staff must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy which is displayed on our website and available as hard copy for our school office.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child or young person’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 or young person’s welfare.
We have a team of Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). Our lead DSL is Mrs R Burrows.
