We take the Safeguarding of our pupils extremely seriously. We ask our whole school community to take a shared commitment to and responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of our pupils. Principally this means all staff and people from other agencies working within the school. However, it also includes, volunteers, parents, families and anyone else who is involved in our school life.

Our Designated Senior Lead (DSL) responsible for Safeguarding is jointly held by Mr Jonathan Austin (Executive Head Teacher) and Mr Michael Pasqualino (Head of School).

The Deputy DSL (DDSL) is Mrs Barbara Allman

If you have any worries, concerns or observations you feel are important, we encouarge you to share them - you can either approach class teachers, the DSL or the DDSL. Open, honest and prompt communication is key to keep our children safe.

We ensure that we operate a Safer Recruitment policy when we make any appointments in school, with the support of Lincolnshire County Council. There will always be one person on an interview panel who is trained in Safer Recruitment.

Currently ALL members of Staff and Volunteers have to hold a valid DBS checks.
