Safeguarding

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at Powerstock School is the Head Teacher Louise Greenham.

The Deputy DSL is Joanna Cleden

The Safeguarding link governors are Trevor Ware (Chair of Governors) and Robyne Irish (governor)

The safety of children at Powerstock CE VA School is priority for all staff.  Everyone in school understands their primary duty to safeguard all the children in their care.

Knowledge through training and working in a safeguarding culture which is secure throughout the school means that each and every child’s wishes are put first.  Staff training is regularly updated to ensure that children are protected from abuse or neglect.  We know we have a responsibility to be aware of any child at risk and know how to pass on any concerns to someone who will act to protect them.

Our staff and governors have been trained on safeguarding in line with the Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2016 document and have taken part in ‘Prevent’ training.

If you have concern surrounding a child’s safety contact our local Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (M.A.S.H) on 01202 228866.
