“Safeguarding is effective. Leaders, including governors, ensure that the appropriate checks for staff recruitment and volunteers are robust. All staff and governors use the latest government requirements about keeping children safe. Staff are vigilant in reporting any concerns”.

Designated Safeguarding Leads [DSLs] at Grasmere
Grasmere 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.
Everyone at Grasmere who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.
School staff are particularly important in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as we are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children. Our school staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children to prevent concerns from escalating. Our school will work with children’s social care, the police, health services and other relevant agencies to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

The school pays full regard to DfE guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ September 2019. We ensure that all appropriate measures are applied in relation to everyone who works in the school who is likely to be perceived by the children as a safe and trustworthy adult including e.g. volunteers and staff employed by contractors.
