Safeguarding has the highest priority in the work of the SDBE. The SDBE recognise that the welfare of the child or young person is paramount. We take seriously our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in our care.

The board of trustees and senior leadership team will act in accordance with the current statutory guidance. They have in place safeguarding arrangements that reflect the importance of safeguarding and promote the welfare of children.

If you are based in a school and have a specific safeguarding issue, you should follow your school’s policy and contact your designated safeguarding leading.

The SDBE Child Protection Policy explains the role of SDBE employees, Trust Board Members and contractors in their work with schools and parishes. It details responsibilities and response of those individuals should they have a safeguarding concern during their work. It is based on the template provided by Dorset Safeguarding and Standards team and complies with the procedures of Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board. Click the icon below to access it.
