Keeping children safe is EVERYBODY'S responsibility
Who to talk to if you have any concerns:
If you are worried about a child or have any concerns about safeguarding, please let a member of staff know that you wish to talk with our Designated Safeguard Lead (DSL) Mrs A Chard or Deputy Designated Safeguard Lead (DDSL) Mrs P Garbett.
The governor with responsibility for safeguarding at our school is Cllr M Freeman.
The school number is 0161 973 4149.
All Springfield staff receive regular safeguarding training. This includes training on the Government's Prevent Duty to counter radicalism and extremism. The Designated Safeguarding Lead and Deputy Safeguarding Lead receive further in-depth safeguarding training at least every two years.
Sometimes school may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. School also participates in 'Operation Encompass', a Police initiative which informs us about domestic abuse incidents relating to any of our pupils.
To further ensure the safety of our pupils, the School operates stringent recruitment and vetting procedures, meaning that nobody commences work unless all necessary checks are complete to a satisfactory level.
