Preston School Safeguarding Statement

At Preston School the health, safety and well being of every student are our paramount concern. We listen to our students and take seriously what they tell us. Our aim is that all students will enjoy their time at Preston School.

We work in Partnership with parents and external agencies to ensure that the students achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution to both their learning and wider community.

On rare occasions we may have concern about a student and this may mean that we have to consult with external agencies even before we contact you. We follow the Somerset Safeguarding guidance and work within their framework and good practice guidelines. We have a Child Protection and Safer Recruitment Policy that we adhere to. These policies are available if requested.

All members of staff both teaching and support staff regularly receive safeguarding training in accordance with the guidelines from Somerset Local Safeguarding Children Board.

The students at Preston School receive information on keeping safe and safe internet usage through assemblies, ICT lessons and academic mentor lessons.

Helen Cullen (Vice Principal) is the Designated Lead Child Protection Officer. There is three deputies Lisa Waller (Learning Manager), Ann Lambert (Welfare Officer) and Clare Wilson (PFSA). Any concerns about a students well being or welfare are referred to the Designated Lead Child Protection Officer.
