Making sure that all our children know how to stay safe is very important to us. Our priority is always to ensure that all members of our school are kept safe both while they are with us in school and when they are at home.

Miss Saxby is the Designated Safeguarding  Lead at Ark Blacklands. All members of staff are responsible for Safeguarding and Child Protection and Miss Saxby is responsible for ensuring all staff are trained to be able to understand and carry out their role as well as ensuring that all children are kept safe and any records or monitoring is accurate and secure.

Throughout the course of the year we have a number of different focuses on ways to keep safe, both across the whole school and in individual classes as appropriate for children’s ages.
