Ferndown First School 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 commitment which can be found here

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism and we are an Operation Encompass School.

If you are concerned about a child you can ring and ask to speak to a DSL. Telephone on 01202 873747

Confidential emails can be sent to dsl@fernfirst.dorset.sch.uk
