More House School is firmly dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of our robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers. We are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding our pupils, enabling them to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens, who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives, whilst making a positive contribution, both socially and economically, to society.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about a pupil are discussed with his parents or carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about the welfare of a child or young person, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) as soon as possible the same day.
