CHILD PROTECTION & SAFEGUARDING PROCEDURES

Mr Toner & Mrs Smith are the Designated Teachers for Child Protection Issues.

Equally if a child is presenting with the signs and symptoms of Child Abuse (see our policy) a referral will have to be made.  

Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy / Procedures will be followed by Mr Toner / Mrs Smith (without delay) before making a referral.
