Safeguarding Children

Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL)

Mrs Joanna Challis

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Gemma Davey


Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play. We at Frant Primary School take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. This means that we ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children.

It also means that we have staff members who are specifically trained and nominated as the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) within school. 

We follow the East Sussex Child Protection Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board local guidance and have systems in place to share concerns regarding children’s welfare with our DSLs, with parents and with relevant external agencies. Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children, may also include us needing to consult specifically with and take advice from, the Police or Children's Social Care, should the need arise.

By working closely together as a staff and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our children.    

If you have any concerns about the safety and/or wellbeing of a child, please speak to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads or alternatively contact Children’s Services directly on 01323 464222 or visit www.eastsussex.gov.uk/childrenandfamilies/worried-about-a-child/
