Child Protection at The Mulberry Primary School
If a member of staff has child protection concerns the Designated Safeguard Lead is informed.
If a child makes a disclosure of abuse the Designated Safeguard Lead will make a referral to Social Services. We are legally obliged to do this.
The school works closely with parents and carers and will keep them informed. We encourage a supportive and open ethos in school that ensures children feel that they have an adult to talk to if things are worrying them.
Safeguarding Your Children: Safer Recruitment
All staff in school are subject to DBS checks. These checks are updated every three years. All agency staff are DBS checked by the individual agencies and this information is provided to us prior to them starting the school. All the voluntary workers are also DBS checked. As part of the recruitment process for staff we take up two professional references (from previous employers or educational institutions) which must meet the basic requirements for appointment—in other words, they must be favourable in all aspects. Any instances of inappropriate behaviour on the part of the adults in school are taken up immediately by the Leadership Team and disciplinary procedures are put in motion if necessary.
We want to support children and families from being drawn into terrorism, becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. The school aims to minimise the risk and prevent them from being drawn in. For support or advice contact: Will Robey (email@example.com)
