Safeguarding policies & information

Springfield School and The Meadows School believe keeping children and young people safe and supporting families is paramount when ensuring every individual is ready to access education and learning. The significance the two schools put on getting this right is exemplified with the creation of the senior leader position of Designated Safeguarding Lead with no teaching and learning responsibility and a Family Work team. This team works pro-actively for the school, with other agencies, in a new approach which may become a model for future working in other schools. The team works from a purpose built Family Resource Base at Springfield School.
