At Wimborne First School we are committed to safeguarding children. Our first priority is your child’s welfare and we will usually discuss any concerns we might have about your child with you. There might be rare occasions, however, when we have to provide information to or consult other agencies such as Children’s Services Social Care before we contact you. Our responsibility to do so is determined by the Inter-Agency Safeguarding Procedures, which can be found on the Dorset Safeguarding Children Board website.  To access this site please click on the following link below...

If you want to know more about these, or the school’s child protection procedures, please speak to Mrs Hartley, Designated Safeguarding Lead.
