At Belfield we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children and young people. We expect all visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you see or hear anything that concerns you please speak to one of our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL)
Deputy Head Teacher
For more information please see our safeguarding policy below.
Around the school you will see charts that explain what to do should a child say something that concerns you. Please immediately inform a DSL. If a member of staff acts in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, please speak to the Head Teacher or Rachel El Washahi our Chair of Governors.
Together we can keep our children safe.
Early Help at Belfield
At Belfield we believe that supporting the families within our community is as important as ensuring our pupils are achieving the best they can. As part of this commitment we have two trained members of staff whom can support a family with an Early Help Assessment. Every family goes through challenging times at some point, and it is okay to ask for help. Early help means working with you and your family so that small problems don’t become big problems, and help you be the very best family you can be.
It is your choice whether or not to have Early Help and you can stop at any point.
The only time the person you talked to has to share information without your consent is;
• If they think you or a child is at risk of harm
• If they think that the information could help prevent or detect a serious crime
Mrs Harper and Mrs Kemp are our early help practitioners at Belfield. If you feel you require some support with family life, please pop into school and speak to one of them. We are also able to sign post families to further support for a number of issues including parenting, drug and alcohol support and services that can support with mental health.
