Who is responsible for the safeguarding of children? It is everybody’s responsibility to be vigilant and listen to students when they are worried about safeguarding issues.
Within LWF every member of staff receives safeguarding training and all staff are made aware of the designated safeguarding officers, currenlty, Ann Stebbings (Head of School, St Bernard’s), Michelle Hockham (Head of School, St Lawence). In their absence contact TALL team, P Evans, S Cole, M Chatterton at St Lawrence, R Baxter, T Stokes at St Bernards, or S Durham within Maples.
