Child Protection and Safeguarding
At Oak Lodge School, we take Child Protection and Safeguarding very seriously.
Schools have a duty to report to Social Services when they have concerns about a child’s well-being outside school. Often, these concerns are resolved quickly without further action being necessary. However, we believe that it is always better to err on the side of caution.
Oak Lodge School will always work closely with parents where concerns are raised, and parents will in most cases be informed when a referral has been made to Social Services.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Holly Black.
The Deputies are:
Jess Doyle, Wellbeing Mentor
Karen Duggan-Stevens, Head of Sixth Form
Rachel Rust, Head of Care
If your child attends a school in Wandsworth and police have responded to a domestic incident, his or her headteacher or school safeguarding lead will be told by 9am the next morning of what has happened.
This is to make sure that a support network is put in place and your child’s teachers are aware of his/her welfare.
