The Ursuline Preparatory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff volunteers and governors have a full and active part to play in protecting or pupils from harm and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern.

We believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, emotional, physical and moral development of the individual child or young person. We have a safeguarding policy in place which is shared with all staff, Governors and Trustees and is available on the Policies webpage or on request from the School Office.

  • Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Anne Farnish
  • The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Daniel McSherry
  • The Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Yvonne Symcox

If you are concerned about a child or young person’s welfare, please record your concern and any observations or conversation heard and report to one of the DSL’s as soon as possible the same day.

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff, which may suggest he/she is unfit to work with children you should report this directly to one of the DSLs. If the concern relates to one of the DSL’s then please notify the Safeguarding Governor.
