Safeguarding children is of the utmost importance at Saint Felix School. Our full safeguarding and child protection policies are in the school policies section.
At Saint Felix School, we take safeguarding children very seriously; it is at the forefront of everything we do. Robust safeguarding procedures protect all students in our care, ensuring students are kept safe and happy within the school environment and can flourish academically, emotionally and socially.
Safer-recruitment practices are in place, and staff, governors and volunteers working in our school are subject to safeguarding security checks, safeguarding induction training, and regularly undertake ongoing safeguarding training. Each staff member knows how to report concerns, and students know who they can talk to if they are worried about themselves or their peers.
We support our students and their families through multiple early help offers to ensure the best possible outcomes. We offer Early Help Assessments (Family Services) to Parents/Guardians, signpost to other agencies, work with the Suffolk Attendance Team and Suffolk Police, and much more.
Saint Felix School’s Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Prevent Lead is Mrs Alicia Mann.
Alternate DSL team members are:
- Ms Annie Hardcastle (Deputy Head)
- Miss Jade Wong (Head of Prep)
- Mrs Halcyon Meldrum (Head of Boarding)
- Mrs Nicky Stubbs (Nursery Supervisor)
Carrie Askew is our Safeguarding Governor.
