Safeguarding at Oakfield

DSL: Miss Poole

DDSL: Miss Bray, Mrs Light-Rowsell

  • Miss Poole is the first point of contact in school for families and can often support straight away - cp@oakfield.academy

  • The staff and governors at Oakfield recognise that children can be vulnerable to various forms of abuse and may be exposed to social factors that negatively impact their lives, such as domestic violence, substance misuse, bullying, mental health issues, and radicalisation. We are aware that safeguarding incidents can occur anywhere and remain vigilant in identifying potential concerns.

  • Our curriculum is designed to teach children how to stay safe and happy. We foster an understanding that any concern or worry they may have is valid and encourage them to share their concerns with a trusted adult, whether at home, school, or through ChildLine.

  • Our entire staff team is prepared to support you with safeguarding matters, offering advice and assistance when needed. Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) communicate daily and hold regular meetings to discuss any concerns raised, review each other's work, and determine the most effective ways to support children and families in need.

  • DSLs collaborate with families directly and engage with external partners and agencies that can provide additional resources or expertise to address the unique needs of each situation.
