Safeguarding

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility

If you have any concerns about a child’s safety you should report these immediately to the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead’s (DSLs).  At Spixworth Infant School the DSLs are:

  • Ms Heidi Jordan (Headteacher)
  • Mrs Felicity Jackson (Teacher)
  • Mrs Hetal Murphy (Teacher)

The Governor responsible for Safeguarding is: Mrs Alison Corfield

If you have a concern about a member of staff, this can also be reported to a DSL.  If your concern is about the Headteacher, you should report this concern to the Chair of Governors: Mrs Angela Eastick.

If you believe a child is at risk of serious harm you can also call the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on: 0344 800 8020

Or if your concern is about a member of staff, the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) on: 01603 223473
