If, at any time, you have any concerns concerning the welfare of a child you can speak to any member of staff in total confidence who will then refer it to the Designated Safeguarding Lead
We take the Safeguarding of our children very seriously and believe two way communication with the parent body is crucial to this.
At our school we work within the following guidelines laid out in the policies below:
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is the Headteacher, Miss Crompton. The Deputy Safeguarding Leads are the Assistant Head, Miss Stone, and Nursery Manager, Miss Callahan.
All our staff receive regular Safeguarding training and each carry guidance of what to do in the event of a Safeguarding disclosure.
Lots of information on Safeguarding in East Sussex can be found here at the East Sussex Local Safeguarding Children Board website.

This is fast becoming an important topic for everyone and we hope to engage the children in this subject through the curriculum and other activities. A guide for parents can be found in the folder below.
