Safeguarding the children at Meadowbank is everyone's responsibility. The designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) role is jointly held by Mrs Appleton, Strategic Lead and the Operational Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Cole-Galley, and our Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Jarvis.
Part of Mrs Cole-Galley's role is supporting families accessing the Team Around the Child/Family (TAC/TAF) or Child Protection processes, liaising with Social care. Mrs Cole-Galley works closely with and can provide links to external agencies should these be required.
Mrs Cole-Galley will always welcome you to contact her should you have any worries, concerns or are experiencing challenges in school or at home. Any change in circumstances, no matter how small can influence the children in school. Mrs Cole-Galley is here to support both you and your child.
