Safeguarding children

Our top priority at Stannington First School is to keep our children safe.  All of our staff have undertaken child protection training. In addition,  we have two members of staff who have received further safeguarding training.These staff are our Designated Safeguarding Leads

It is a legal requirement that schools should have a named school Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for Child Protection.

In our school we have two members of staff who have received the training to be Designated Safeguarding Leads

They are:

Mrs Alexandra Palmer - Head Teacher

Mrs Angela Harker - Office Manager

You can contact the DSL by calling the school or e-mailing:


The DSL follows the guidance laid down in:

DfE document - Keeping Children Safe in Education - September 2018

and the Inter agency Procedures produced by the Northumberland Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB)
