St Dominic’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support pupils and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2020. If a pupil or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.
COVID-19 SAFEGUARDING UPDATE: please see the Covid-19 annex to our safeguarding policy for details of how we continue to safeguard students through the coronavirus pandemic.
For more information, please see our safeguarding and wellbeing offer.
Please see our policy and procedure for further details.
The safety of our students is our number one priority. As we all know, the risks in modern society are varied and constantly changing and we cannot remove these, so we all need to help educate children in ways to keep themselves safe.
As part of safeguarding the pupils of St Dominic’s School we will ensure that no political is promoted. If political views are discussed as part of the school curriculum we will ensure this is a balanced discussion.
If anyone is worried that a pupil is being abused or there are safeguarding issues, the senior designated member of staff should be contacted. Alternatively you can contact the LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer) at Surrey Council.
