Child Protection & Safeguarding on the
(Dedworth Green First School and Dedworth Middle School)
We take all safeguarding and child protection issues very seriously, and the safety, welfare and wellbeing of our pupils, staff, volunteers, parents and visitors is paramount. Safeguarding comes first. We strongly believe that everyone in our community both on and offsite should share in this commitment.
The school will not tolerate any discriminatory, rude, aggressive or threatening behaviour to any staff, students or any member of our wider community.
Prior to employment all staff (paid or voluntary) are DBS or List 99 checked for their suitability to work with children and young people, depending if they are in regulated or unregulated work with the children.
All staff at the school are provided with mandatory ‘initial’ safeguarding training when they join the school. This is the followed up with annual ‘refresher’ training. Both initial and refresher training sessions cover roles and responsibilities of staff, signs to look out for and what to do in the event of a concern. All safeguarding training is led by the Designated Safeguarding Lead and/or one of the Deputies. Staff also complete online training through SSS CPD and NOS every year, covering various modules.
The school ensures that all staff have read the DfE’s “Keeping Children Safe in Education (2021)”; “Working Together to Safeguard Children” guidance and the school’s Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy.
