Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. All professionals should ensure that their approach is child centred: this means considering at all times what is in the best interests of the child. Concerns must always be logged and staff members must raise any safeguarding concerns with the appropriate safeguarding lead without delay. Parents and carers should feel able to come and talk to any of our team, and/or the safeguarding leads named below.
We regularly update key policies in relation to safeguarding. On our policies page you can find our policies for Child Protection and Safeguarding, Online Safety, Whistleblowing and other relevant policies. Our online safety page also has information about keeping children safe online.
Key roles in safeguarding:
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Emma Morris.

Child protection procedures:
If there are serious concerns about immediate risk to a child or that a child has suffered significant harm and continues to be at risk, the school will contact the local authority and/or the Wandsworth Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) immediately. If a child is in immediate danger, the police will also be contacted.
