Littlegreen School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy, which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Miss Ridgwell (Headteacher). Our Deputy DSL is Miss Davis (SLT).
