Upton Junior School recognises that the welfare of the child is paramount: the needs and wishes of each child will be put first. We take seriously our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children and young people in our care.
This school has a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). This is the person with whom concerns about children should be discussed and reported. The school currently also has two Deputy Safeguarding Leads.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead in this school is Mr Tony Collins
The Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mr Lawrence Long and Mrs Jayne French
The Nominated Governor in this school is Mr John Godber
A copy of our Safeguarding Policy can be found in our Policies section of the website.
In addition, the Dorset Family Support Teams (incorporating Children’s Social Care and Early Intervention Services) can provide advice and guidance on safeguarding and child protection matters.

Safeguarding Officers offer advice and support to Headteachers and Designated Safeguarding Leads in relation to any child protection issues and are the Local Authority Designated Officers to whom allegations against adults who work with children in education establishments must be reported.
Are you private fostering? Do you know what private fostering is?
Private fostering is when a child under the age of 16 (or 18 if disabled) lives with someone for 28 days or more who is not a:
close relative such as a grandparent, sibling, uncle or aunt or step-parent
person with parental responsibility
The parent/s and the private foster carer would make this arrangement, not the local council.
