At Dovedale Primary School the safety and wellbeing of our pupils is at the heart of all we do.
The thread of safeguarding runs through all policies and procedures and throughout our school day.
Mrs Houseman is the designated safeguarding lead in our school, Mrs Tomlinson and Miss Martin are the deputy safeguarding leaders. Elaine Jones is the governor responsible for safeguarding.
All staff update their safeguarding training yearly, receive updates on a regular basis in staff training and are required to read and sign appropriate and statutory documents.
Safeguarding includes child protection, health and safety, e-safety, and wellbeing including anti bullying.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the health and safety of a child or a safeguarding process please contact the school office and arrange an appointment to see Mrs Houseman who will be more than happy to discuss this with you.
