Safeguarding

Safeguarding Information

The Designated Safeguarding Leader at this school is the Assistant Head , Mr M Warwick. The Principal (Mrs T Farrelly),  Deputy Head (Mrs S Dunne),  SENDCO (Mrs C Humphrey) and Senior Teacher (Mrs D Bullen) are also fully trained Deputy Safeguarding Leaders. Please report any concerns directly to one of these members of staff.

All staff who deal with children have a very clear duty to report any concern they may have about any child’s well-being.  There are well-established national procedures for dealing with such a situation.  All staff, governors and visiting instructors have been cleared by the Disclosure and Barring Service as having no record which would prevent them from working with children.  If a child is subject to a court order, then parents or carers must make that known to the Principal.

To contact the school about a safeguarding or child protection concern, please use the email address dsl@gossopsgreen.com

Should you be unable to report concerns to the DSL team at school, here is the link for the West Sussex Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub  (MASH)  where you can report any safeguarding concerns: http://www.westsussexscb.org.uk/parents-carers-2
