Safeguarding Statement


The parents of Southlands School students should be aware that the school has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. This responsibility necessitates a safeguarding policy and the school may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. This policy complies with guidance from the DfE and the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB). The School recognises it is an agent of referral and not of investigation. Anyone can make a referral to children's social care, if necessary. The designated safeguarding lead (DSL) for the school is Cat Catton.


Complaints Procedure


We know there will be times when students, carers, parents or placing authorites will want to give us feedback about our school and we will always be happy to hear from you. If you feel that you would like to make a suggestion, let us know about something you were pleased with, or tell us we did not meet your expectations, please contact the school via the details on the main page. A complaints procedure allows for both formal and informal complaints.


Informal complaints can be dealt with quickly, while formal complaints should be made in writing. Our full complaints policy is available above or from the school on request. This policy is designed to help you raise concerns and ensures your complaint will be dealt with fairly. Should you wish to take your complaint further or if you feel you are unable to discuss the details with the school, please contact the Director of Education here, especially if your complaint relates to the school leadership.
