At Whiston Worrygoose we have a Safeguarding Team to lead on this key area of work. We regard seeking to identify and overcome all barriers to learning as an important part of the partnership between school and families.
Staff in school, by law, have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be suffering harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse. It is a Department for Education requirement that each school in the country nominates a senior member of staff who will have special responsibility for Child Protection. In Rotherham, this member of staff is known as the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and must have been in receipt of advanced safeguarding training.
Please explore our Safeguarding pages below for further information and support.
