Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children.
Staff members at Crown Lane have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn. They have a responsibility to identify children who may need extra help or those who are likely to suffer significant harm (Keeping Children Safe in Education, April 2014).
The Designated Lead for Safeguarding is Diane John-Cyrus
If you have any safeguarding concerns or are worried about a child at this school, please ask to speak to Ms John-Cyrus or in her absence a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Alternatively, you could contact Lambeth Children’s Services for advice on 0207 926 1000.
The Prevent Strategy
Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation is seen as part of schools’ wider safeguarding duties, and is similar in nature to protecting children from other forms of harm and abuse. From 1 July 2015, schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent duty.
