Safeguarding Statement


The parents of students at Cambian Potterspury Lodge School should be aware that the School has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of their students. 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 Sarah Stacey and Claire Murr (Residential) and the Deputy DSLs are Josh Mayer, Kerri Webster, Danielle Roberts and Charlotte Utaipiboon.

Children have made progress from their starting points at the home. Some of this progress derives from the positive relationships that children have with staff. A core group of staff have an excellent understanding of the children’s needs. One child said, 'Staff saved me, I don’t know where I would be without them. The support they have given me has helped me to make progress that I didn’t think was possible.'
