Safeguarding

Please see below for the latest safeguarding information and updates from the school and the Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership. 

 

In school, our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Karen Stuart and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Mrs Sarah Kirkbride. 

Both the DSL and DDSL can be contacted in school hours using the school phone number 01900 517632

Alternatively, they can be contacted by email at k.stuart@cumbriaacademyforautism.org.uk or s.kirkbride@cumbriaacademyforautism.org.uk

Full details on the county's policies, procedures and processes with regard to safeguarding plus analysis of outcomes of serious case reviews can be accessed through the Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership website at

 https://www.cumbriasafeguardingchildren.co.uk/

The site also has a parental information zone.

If you ever have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child then you can ring your concerns through to the County's 24 hour 'Safeguarding Hub' number and you can remain anonymous if you wish.

Callers can outline their concerns and the Safeguarding Hub will give advice (consultation) and if necessary undertake an assessment of need.

Call 0333 240 1727

There is now also an adult NSPCC helpline where any concerned adult can seek advice if they are concerned about a child and would like advice on whether to make a referral.

The number to call is:

0808 800 5000
