At St James' CE VC First School we are committed to safeguarding children. Our first priority is your child’s welfare and we will usually discuss any concerns we might have about your child with you. There might be rare occasions, however, when we have to provide information to or consult other agencies such as Children’s Services Social Care before we contact you. Our responsibility to do so is determined by the Inter-Agency Safeguarding Procedures, which can be found on the Dorset Safeguarding Children Board website.  To access this site please click on the link below.

If you would like to know more about the school's safeguarding procedures, please speak to:

Mrs Jacqui Booth - Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Georgie Butt is the Designated Governor responsible for Child Protection.
