At Woldgate School and Sixth Form College, the Designated Safeguarding Lead (and Assistant Headteacher) is Amanda Longstaff who works extremely closely with Ruth Ibbetson, our Education Welfare and Child Protection Co-ordinator.
‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children…’
‘School and college staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early, provide help for children, and prevent concerns from escalating.’
Woldgate School and Sixth Form College takes safeguarding very seriously. All employees have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check carried out as part of our pre-employment checks and checks are also undertaken to verify identity, address, qualifications required for the post, right to work in the UK and previous employment history.
All employees at Woldgate have repeat DBS checks at least every three years and wear an identity badge on a green lanyard with a photograph that identifies them.
