Child Protection & Safeguarding

Who do we tell if we are concerned about a child?

A Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is the first point of contact for anybody who has a concern about the safety and/or wellbeing of a child.

We have 1 DSL at Nunney First School and 1 Deputy DSLs.

If a DSL believes a child is at risk of immediate harm and needs urgent protection, they will call Children’s Social Care (Somerset Direct).

Members of the community can also call Somerset Direct if they believe a child is at risk of IMMEDIATE HARM.

The Partnership Trust’s Safeguarding Statement

The Partnership Trust and all schools within it are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect everyone associated with the Trust to share this commitment.

Safeguarding is protecting children and vulnerable adults from the abuse and/or neglect that leads to significant harm. It relates to the actions taken to promote the welfare of children and young people.

To effectively fulfil this responsibility all employees and volunteers within the Trust ensure their approach is child-centred and consider at all times, what is in the best interests of the child or young person.
