Safeguarding & Wellbeing
Compass School Southwark is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitments, including our Safeguarding, Child Protection and Student Welfare Policy which can be viewed on our website.
All staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing concerns within school. If any members of the school or local community have concerns about the welfare of a child, please pass them on to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Jessica Hazlewood on firstname.lastname@example.org, or via the school office on 02035426506, or mobile 07796670211.
