Safeguarding and Prevent
Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy
Broad Oak is committed to safeguarding and promoting the physical, mental and emotional welfare of every pupil. We implement a whole-school preventative approach to managing safeguarding concerns, ensuring that the wellbeing of pupils is at the forefront of all action taken. We recognise that no single professional can have a full picture of a child’s needs and circumstances. If children and families are to receive the right help at the right time, everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action.
Keeping Children Safe In Education
Our Safeguarding Team
Our Safeguarding Lead member of staff is Kelly Dytham and the Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Miss S Barton, Miss S Meredith and Mrs A Sutton.
We work with Operation Encompass in conjunction with Lancashire Police to ensure the safeguarding of all the children in the school. This alerts us to any incident where a child may have been exposed to domestic violence which required police intervention.
