Safeguarding - Pool Hayes Primary School

Go to content

My name is Dawn Davis, and I have been appointed to the role of safeguarding (DDSL) and family support manager here at Pool Hayes.

What is my role?

I will endeavour to support parents and their children, where there may be early signs that families could benefit from additional help.

I am also available to provide information to parents about relevant local services available, such as child care providers, educational courses, parenting classes/skills etc.

It is also part of my role to engage with families who children arrive at school late, to try to ascertain if there is any way this can effectively be reduced, whereby the child doesn't feel isolated, or misses out, missing with his/her peers prior to going into class.

How to contact me:

I have an open door policy and you would be more than welcome to come into school, or if you prefer I can also visit you at home.

Pool Hayes Primary School has adopted ‘Walsall Safeguarding Children Board’ policy for safeguarding within school. There is a system of referral transparent to all staff, and any employee or voluntary helper must hold an up-to-date DBS. There are weekly Safeguarding meetings held to discuss provision for vulnerable children. This is to ensure:
  • Children are protected from maltreatment;
  • Children’s health and development is not impaired;
  • Children grow up with a safe provision and have effective care to enable them to have optimum life chances.

In safeguarding the pupils in school, the school may involve other agencies and adopts a multi-agency approach to safeguarding.
All staff working within the school have received Level 1 Safeguarding training delivered by a government Child Safeguarding Team. It is the duty of every member of staff to record and report any concerns to the above named staff.
