At Spilsby Primary we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and all staff and volunteers have undergone an enhanced DBS check.
Staff are trained to recognise potential Child Protection issues and report to the named person at school, who has received enhanced training. Mrs Penny Cragg is our designated safeguard lead (DSL) and Mr Andrew Clarke is the deptuty safeguarding lead. Outside agencies are approached for assistance and support when appropriate.
Our Safeguarding Trustee, Ms M Standbrook, is responsible for monitoring all safeguarding procedures and reporting back to the Governing Body.
We follow up all incidences of bullying reported to us in line with our Anti Bullying policy.
