Roding Child Protection and Safeguarding guidance during closure
We take the safeguarding of our children very seriously and will be upholding the same standards throughout this time of school closure. This is the information that has been provided to all staff over this period:
All staff on site during the partial closure who are made aware of a CP/safeguarding issue for one of the children who is in school will follow the usual school guidance. An outline of the process is given below:
What to do if a child discloses something to you
- Reassure the child.
- Listen so an accurate account can be given of what was said.
- Tell the child the information will need to be shared so that their concern could be dealt with.
- Depending on the disclosure, refer directly to a member of the designated safeguarding team. This could include physical abuse with visual marking, witness to domestic violence or sexual abuse.*
- Complete a CPOMS incident in as much detail as possible in all instances of disclosure including inadequate food or hygiene, emotional abuse & other physical abuse.
If you are concerned about the conduct of a member of staff.
- Report concerns to the Lead person on site; if the concern is about the site head report to the executive head who will take the necessary steps. This will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
- For further information and advice, please visit:
*During this time of closure, once once there has been a disclosure from the child please contact the lead person on site (usually a DSL) or the relevant site DSL for further advice.

Cannington Road Site
If there is a concern that the child is at immediate risk and the DSLs are not contactable call Ext 3811 immediately – this is the social services triage line, explain everything to them and they will be able to provide advice and act quickly.
They may ask for a completed Multi Agency Referral Form (MARF) – this is not difficult and can be completed online via the link below (access to Integris for the child’s details is required in order to complete the MARF).
