Safeguarding and Child Protection

Our top priority at Chollerton First School is to keep our children safe.  Because of this, we have two members of staff and one governor who have received further safeguarding training.

It is a legal requirement that each school should have a named school Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for Child Protection.

In our school we have two members of staff who have received the training to be DSL teachers.

They are:

Mrs Hazel Davey - Head Teacher

Mrs Maureen Broadbent - Senior Teacher and Assistant DSL

The DSL follows the guidance laid down in:

DfE document - Keeping Children Safe in Education - September 2018.

And the Interagency Procedures produced by the Northumberland Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB).
