Safeguarding at Springwell Community College
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility – governors, staff, parents, carers, students and the wider community. We all have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
If you have concerns about the health, safety or well-being of a student, you should share this information with an appropriate member of college staff immediately. Any concern, however small you may feel it is, is important and we would rather you share these concerns, than miss a bigger issue.
If your concerns are of a child protection nature, where you feel a child may be subjected to either physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect, you should ask to speak to a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) immediately.
