Child Protection and Safeguarding Children

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Charlotte Afzal

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Lotty Storer

Longdon Park School has clear Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures, policy documents and a training programme that incorporates Government and Policy Legislation. Staff are given a copy of the Child Protection Procedures. Staff receive annual training from an outside consultant and frequent CPD programmes. Parents/carers, social workers, placing authorities and other significant people can request a copy of the Child Protection policy.

Longdon Park provides policy guidance, which sets out clear guidelines and expectations in the school with regards to appropriate relationships between all staff and the children. At Longdon Park we provide a very caring and professional setting in which the children will be given full emotional support without it being detrimental to their safety and well-being. All staff are aware of their responsibilities for Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people.

Longdon Park has a duty of care and therefore a responsibility to pass on any child protection and safeguarding concerns to the relevant children’s social care services.
