Keeping children safe is a priority at St Mary's C of E Primary School and Nursery.
Miss Lampert is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Miss Hamblin is the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL). This means that they oversea all safeguarding at St Mary's including (and not limited to) creating a culture, of safeguarding, support for children and families, the professional development of staff, safer recruitment, behaviour support and attendance monitoring.
Mrs Gilliam is the link governor for safeguarding. She works closely with the Headteacher (DSL) to strategically monitor and support safeguarding at St Mary's School.
