At Knaphill, we understand that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. All members of staff, including teaching and support staff receive annual safeguarding training.
This covers all areas in the DFE document, ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (updated in September 2019) – including the Prevent Strategy, FGM and Child Sexual Exploitation.
Miss Concannon and Miss Daly are our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) and Miss Baird and Mrs Chereau are Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads. They attend regular training to keep up to date with all issues relating to child protection and safeguarding. The School has robust procedures that record issues that relate to child protection. We work with an array of agencies including Children’s Services, the School Nurse and the Police. Additional updates and training are given to staff as needed throughout the year. The named Safeguarding Governor is Alison Packman.
