Safeguarding

Wargrave House School & College promotes a caring and pragmatic approach to safeguarding believing that this fundamental issue is the responsibility of all staff.

Key Aspects

All prospective staff are subject to thorough safer recruitment protocols and accompanying DBS checks. Upon appointment to role staff members undertake a probationary period of at least 6 months this is underpinned by consistent induction process aligned to safeguarding and wider professional developmental needs.

There are a series of consistent meetings/forums to ensure that all full time, part time and visiting staff are fully aware of important organisational needs, additionally prevalent national developments and/or policy changes are communicated through a weekly staff safeguarding bulletin. Our cycle of safeguarding is as follows;

  • Monday – full staff briefing containing safeguarding key messages/updates and themes of the week. Internal Safeguarding Board meeting (ISB) communicates key actions following the weekend with direct reports from:
    • Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)
    • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL)
    • Medical Lead
    • Behavioural Lead
    • E-Safe Lead
    • Site/Health & Safety Lead
    • Family Liaison Lead
    • Administration Lead
