Safeguarding children at Birchwood

At Birchwood we take the job of safeguarding children seriously. It is everyone's job in our school to make sure children are feeling safe.
 
If staff have any concerns, they know it is their duty to report this to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).
The DSL is trained to know the appropriate action to take to ensure the child's safety.
 
At Birchwood, four staff are trained to DSL level. Whilst Mr Coleman holds DSL status, Mrs Day, Mrs Webb and Mrs Spies, deputise in the role.
