Safeguarding

Farmborough Church Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We follow safer recruitment practices and all staff and volunteers are DBS checked.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr Darren Roberts (Headteacher). He is also the designated teacher for Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children.

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Mrs Ruth Howell (Deputy Headteacher).

Our DSLs oversee all safeguarding at Farmborough, including (and not limited to) creating a culture of safeguarding, support for children and families, the professional development of staff, safer recruitment, behaviour support and attendance monitoring. 

Our Safeguarding Link Governor is Louise Maggs.

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be found here.  This takes full account of the September 2023 version of Keeping Children Safe in Education.

Safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone in our school. Any safeguarding concerns should be reported to the Designated Safeguarding Leads via telephone: 01761 470714 or via email: office@farmboroughchurchprimary.org.uk
