Henley In Arden school takes its responsibility to safeguard children as its top priority. Children are not able to learn if they do not feel safe and secure in the knowledge that there are adults in school who will listen to their concerns and worries and act on them in their best interests. All children in school know who the designated safeguarding leads are through regular briefings and posters around the site. Children know that staff will not keep secrets, but will pass information through the safeguarding team to the appropriate agencies. The senior Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Nikki Thompson, who is assisted by the deputy DSL’s Natalie Pearsall & John Insley. The Head teacher is trained, as are the Progress Leaders and Pastoral managers.
