Welcome from our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) Mrs Crump and Mrs Virgilio
The safety and well being of all the children at Ogbourne CofE Primary School is of paramount importance and we have clear and concise procedures in place to ensure that every child and adult is safe. We meet and exceed all statutory requirements and regularly monitor safeguarding provision. We expect all staff, volunteers, parents, carers and the wider school community to share our commitment to safeguarding our children.
Welcome from Sarah Farley, our Link Governor for Safeguarding
I am the Safeguarding Governor working with the School’s Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) in supporting the School both in keeping the children safe whilst they are here and in promoting their welfare. This role is an important one since I must:
- understand the requirements of safeguarding as it is a governance requirement under the Education Act;
- check that the School is compliant with statutory guidance;
- and ensure we have effective systems in place to keep all children, especially those who may be more vulnerable, safe.
I enjoy the contact this role gives me with the School and the responsibility to ensure we keep our children safe whilst here.
