We take the safety of all of our pupils very seriously. The school has a Pastoral Group which is also the Safeguarding Team. The Deputy-Head is the Designated Senior Safeguarding Person and the Head of Boarding is her Deputy. A member of the Prep School staff is the named person for EYFS Safeguarding matters. The rest of the team comprises of the director of VIth Form, the Key Stage Coordinators, the LESCo, Sister, the Senior Housemistress and the Director of Dance. They all will have received multi-agency safeguarding training by December 2014 and all staff receive Level 1 Child Protection training regularly, with updates provided by the safeguarding team. You can see our Pastoral and Safeguarding Team Structure on the Pastoral Page. Staff are recruited following a ‘safer recruitment’ procedure (please read the Recruitment, Selection and Disclosure Policy) on the Vacancies at AB page
