Safeguarding, Child Protection and Welfare at TCS

Teignmouth Community School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Safeguarding at Teignmouth Community School is of the highest importance. We have a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and three Deputy DSLs. We also have a number of other experienced members of staff that are trained to Level 3 Safeguarding and able to deputise for either the DSL or either one of the Deputy DSL.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe this would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

If anyone has concerns, that are potentially of a safeguarding nature, with regard to any member of the Teignmouth Community School learning community then they should contact a member of our designated safeguarding team by telephone on 01626 774091 and stating the need to report a safeguarding concern; or email direct on the addresses given below:
