Child protection and safeguarding are given the highest priority at Lambs Lane. Regular training is implemented to ensure that everyone working at the school is up to date with latest guidelines and good practice. All staff are required to report and record in writing any concerns they may have concerning a child’s well-being. The Headteacher, as Designated Child Protection Officer, will decide if any welfare issues should be discussed with, or referred to, Social Services.
All members of staff, governors, parent helpers and other adults working or helping in school are DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) checked to ensure they have no criminal convictions that would preclude them from working with children. When appointing new members of staff, the selection panel will always contain at least one member trained in safer recruiting.
