What to do if you have a concern about a child:

  • Act quickly
  • Speak to the DSL (Designated Safeguarding Leader)– Mrs Parsons or a DDSL (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leader) - Mrs Denney or Mrs Taylor - ring school 0161 764 1132 and say you need to speak to someone about a safeguarding concern
  • Staff: create a CPOMS entry. If necessary, call or speak to a DSL. Not got a number? Phone someone who does.
  • If you need to seek advice or make a referral yourself, and a DSL cannot be contacted, then you must phone 0161 253 5678 Out of hours phone 0161 253 6606. In an emergency, phone 999. This document is really helpful, too – it walks you through the process step by step.
