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 Caroline Rowlandson.
