All staff are trained annually in Child Protection and Safeguarding, with regular updates throughout the year and all new staff have a full induction package. All students and supply staff receive safeguarding advice and information before starting their placement. All staff and volunteers have been checked with the Disclosure and Barring Service and a single central record is kept of those checks The Designated Senior Leads for safeguarding have regular training regarding their designated safeguarding role.

Operation Encompass

As part of our commitment to support and safeguard our pupils, we are part of the Lancashire initiative, Operation Encompass. This partnership scheme has been set up to provide early reporting to schools about any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school hours, which may have an impact on the schooling of a pupil the following day. Information will only be shared with the school by police where it is identified that a young person was present, witnessed or was involved the incident. 

Key Adult – Kirsty Ashton (Training renewed 28/11/22)
