At Richard Hill we are committed to keeping our children safe both in and out of school. We know it is of the utmost importance to have robust systems for protecting children and safeguarding their welfare.
We expect all staff, governors, parents and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. If you have a concern about the safety or wellbeing of a child you need to report this immediately, in person to one of our Designated Safeguarding Lead’s (DSL’s) in school as listed below. Safeguarding concerns relating to members of staff or adults in school should be reported directly to the Headteacher.
Mrs Applebee- Senior Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs Knox - Deputy Safeguarding Lead
Mr Burnett - Deputy Safeguarding Lead
Miss Farrell - Deputy Safeguarding Lead (Midday and After School Club)
Alternatively you can raise a concern with any member of staff in school and we will treat your concerns seriously within our safeguarding policies and procedures.
