Safeguarding Children - information for parents
Ashcott School takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and procedures for ensuring the safety and well-being of children at Ashcott School are robust. For information about how the school carries out its duties and how parents can support the school, please download the leaflet below (paper copies are available in the school lobby). All staff who work at the school follow the guidance set out in the Department for Education document 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' (available to download below).
Our school's Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Richard Briar and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Serena Shore.
