Safeguarding

Below is the NSPCC definition of safeguarding.

 

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

 

Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

 

The responsibility to keep children safe belongs to all of us. Oakwood has a very clear Safeguarding Policy that is available from the school office or under our Policies section on this website.

 

If you have any safeguarding concerns about a child and wish to speak to a DSL please make an appointment at the school office. Alternatively if you have a concern about a child outside of school please contact the Single Point of Advice (SPOA) who can direct your concern to the correct place within East Sussex Children’s Services. This can be done anonymously if necessary.

 

To contact SPOA please call 01323 464222 between 8:30am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
