Infant School

'Learning together to make a difference'

Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)

When Should I Contact the DSL?

  • To report ANY safeguarding concern about any pupil at this school (whether the concern is within or outside of school).
  • To report ANY safeguarding concern about any adult at this school (e.g. staff member, agency worker, placement student, governor, parent, volunteer).
  • To report poor practice or a policy risk that could impact on the school's ability to effectively carry out its safeguarding duties.
  • If the DSL is not available, the school has two deputy DSLs whom can be contacted via the school office.


When Should I NOT Contact the DSL?

  • When the concern relates to the DSL themselves - In this instance you should instead contact the chair of governors.
  • If the Chair of Governors is not available, safeguarding concerns relating to the DSL should be reported to the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO).
