Safeguarding


Safeguarding at Ham Dingle

We are committed to keeping every child safe and for this reason, we ensure that any adult working in school undertakes rigorous criminal checks.                                                              

We insist that any visitor to school who will be working in areas where children have access has clearance and photographic evidence of who they are.

We pride ourselves on every child at Ham Dingle having 'a voice' and for this reason we listen to and thoroughly investigate any allegation a child makes.

All staff have regularly updated Child Protection and safeguarding training.

Safeguarding Procedures

Here at Ham Dingle, we take safeguarding very seriously. It is everybody's responsibility. If you have a concern around the safety of a child please contact Mrs Catherine Feane (Designated Safeguarding Lead) or  in her absence, Mrs Sam Matthews/Ms Deb Hunt (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads).

If the school is closed, please contact the Dudley MASH team on 0300 555 0050. If you feel a child is in danger, you must call 999.
