Caring, learning, sharing - Success for all



Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)- Mrs L Tate

My main role is the Designated Safeguarding Lead. I will address any concerns regarding Child Protection. I liaise with other agencies including Childrens Social Care to ensure children are protected.  My role is ensuring staff training (including my own) and policies and procedures are followed and kept up to date.

Another part of my role is to provide emotional support to children and their families. I work full time (8.30am – 4pm) and I am available throughout the school term. I am here to provide a friendly listening ear and offer emotional support for any troubles or worries. I can also signpost to other support agencies such as the Driffield Childrens Centre or our own ELSA programme.

I was delighted to join the school in September 2017. I have over twenty five years’ experience in working with children and families. I am totally committed to ensuring best outcomes for the child.

My office is located near the reception, quite handy for the children to pop in, which they do regularly!

Please feel free to pop in to see me or telephone to make an appointment, if you wish to discuss any concerns you have regarding your child.

How Everyone’s Invited Started. Soma’s experience of rape culture began in her early teenage years. Conversations with friends throughout her time at school and university began to reveal to her just how widespread the issue is for young people.
