In our school, the safety of the children is of paramount importance. Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Howson, and Mrs Abbasi, Mrs Burton-Grange and Mrs Hughes are also part of the DSL team.
If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of a child, please contact the school office and ask to speak to Mrs Howson as DSL in the first instance, however there will always be a DSL team member you can speak to if she is not available. If the office is closed, please email the office and mark it as high importance and for the attention of a DSL and one of the team will contact you promptly on the next working day.
For urgent safeguarding concerns out of school hours, please contact the Kent Central Duty Team on 03000 411111 (or 03000 419191)
If you are concerned that a child is at risk of immediate harm, please contact the police on 999.
For Online Safety advice and tips, please go to the Online Safety section under the School Information tab. Further to this, both the NSPCC and Child Line have a wealth of information.
