Everyone at Durweston CE VA Primary School who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School staff are particularly important in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as we are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children. School staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children to prevent concerns from escalating. We will work with Children’s Social Care, the Police, Health services and other relevant agencies to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
