De La Salle School’s safeguarding arrangements are inspected by Ofsted under the judgements for behaviour and safety, and leadership and management.

Our core safeguarding principles are:

  • The school’s responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children is of paramount importance
  • Safer children make more successful learners
  • Representatives of the whole‐school community of pupils, parents, staff and governors will be involved in policy development and review
  • Policies will be reviewed at least annually unless an incident or new legislation or guidance suggests the need for an interim review

Child Protection Statement

At De La Salle School we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils.  We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.  We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.


The designated senior person (DSP) for child protection is Mrs Anna De'Ath.

The deputy designated senior person is Mr Paul Ross.
