Safeguarding

At Turing House School we take safeguarding and child protection issues very seriously.

We believe that all those who come into contact with children and families in their everyday work have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Prior to employment all staff (paid or voluntary) are checked against the government's Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for their suitability to work with children and young people. Safeguarding forms part of our recruitment process and all interview panels include staff qualified in "safer recruitment" and include elements to further test candidates suitability to work with children.

At employment and then annually, staff are also required to complete safeguarding training. Updates on aspects of safeguarding from part of all staff training throughout each year. This training includes an overview of responsibilities, signs and symptoms as well as advice and guidance about what to do in the event of a concern.

Protection and Early Help Services

In Richmond upon Thames, these services are provided by Achieving for Children’s Protection and Early Help Services. The school accesses these services for children by referring their needs to the Single Point of Access. This is also where child protection concerns are referred. It means that additional support for children, whatever their level of need can be coordinated and managed clearly and effectively.
