Keeping Children Safe

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play.

Keeping Children Safe in Education, 2020

 

We all have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  Safeguarding our pupils is an important part of our daily work; all Marpool staff have regular training and know how to alert our Safeguarding Team to any concerns that they may have. 

Our Safeguarding Team

 If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or are a child concerned about your own safety, please do contact a member of staff or you can contact the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0345 155 1071 or email mashsecure@devon.gov.uk and give as much information as you can.

If you think that a child is at immediate risk, call the police on 999.
