The start of this year has been a busy time updating staff on the safeguarding changes brought in by the government over the summer break. The updated version of ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ was issued in September 2018 and the Safeguarding Team and I have incorporated this into the updated school safeguarding policy and staff training. As DSL I have met with and updated the Governors of these key changes through the Full Board and dedicated Committee meetings. The school has submitted to Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board its school safeguarding report of 2017-18 and a full self-audit in good time and in full. As DSL I have also recently met with Mrs Rimell to keep her updated on all the safeguarding aspects of school life.
