At Blenheim we take the Safeguarding of our children very seriously. The school has staff who are trained as designated safeguarding personnel, Mrs Kirk and Miss Peaker, along with the designated safeguarding lead, Mrs Duffy. They ensure that any child protection concerns which are raised about a child are dealt with quickly, safely and fairly. It is our duty to report any serious concerns to the relevant authority.
