Lulworth and Winfrith CE VC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as "Designated Child Protection Officers" in school in compliance with the "sharing of information" guidance.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Skinner, Headteacher. He is supported by two Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Miss Stopforth and Mrs Collins. Other key members of staff are also trained to deal with safeguarding matters.
We have a Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place, a copy of the policy can be found on this website.
The Prevent Duty guidance (under the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015) places a duty on schools to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism." All staff have received training in this area and this is monitored and updated regularly by the school Governors as part of our safeguarding auditing process.
