Cantrell Primary and Nursery School has a duty of care to all pupils. We collectively work hard to protect children from harm and to safeguard their wellbeing. Everyone at Cantrell Primary and Nursery School is responsible for safeguarding but we do have a dedicated team of trained Safeguarding Leads.

The role of the DSL for Child Protection is to take responsibility for dealing with child protection issues, provide advice and support to other staff, liaising with the local authority and working with other agencies to ensure all children at our school are safe.
