"The arrangements for safeguarding are rigorous. All adults who work with children are meticulously checked. The site is secure. Required checks on safety are carried out diligently. The school works in highly effective partnership with parents and a variety of external agencies to secure pupils' physical and emotional safety."
(Ofsted, October 2015)
At St Dominic Savio we are passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment. Through our school curriculum children learn about being safe and how to keep themselves and others safe, including an understanding of risk.
We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All of our staff maintain a culture of vigilance in all areas of school life. We have robust policies in place for ensuring the wellbeing of our children. These policies underpin our practice and values shared by every single member of staff in our school. Copies are available from the school office.
Any concerns about children are passed through the members of staff who are trained as “Designated Safeguarding Leads” in the school, in compliance with the “sharing of information” guidance.
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Rhona Miccoli (Deputy Headteacher)
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Mr James Broadbridge (Headteacher)
Designated Safeguarding Link Governor: Dr John McKendrick (Chair of Governors)
