Safeguarding

Catch22’s approach to safeguarding all of our learners is founded in the nature of our relationships. We prioritise assessing and managing the needs of our learners and have a dynamic approach to identification, assessment and response to risk.

The school aims to ensure that:

  • Appropriate action is taken in a timely manner to safeguard and promote children’s welfare
  • All staff are aware of their statutory responsibilities with respect to safeguarding
  • Staff are properly trained in recognising and reporting safeguarding issues

 

What to do if you have any concerns

​As a parent, carer or member of our community you may become concerned about the health, safety and welfare of a child who attends Oxford Include.

​You should contact the school and ask to speak to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) if you are;

  • concerned that a child is not safe
  • concerned that a child may not be safe
  • think a child might be being abused

​During school hours (8:00am to 4:30pm) you should either phone 01865 792 484/ 07825 537 615 or email alex.walsh@include.org.uk

If you have serious concerns because you think that a child might be being abused (physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse or neglect) you should contact the Children’s Services Department at Oxford Council.

During office hours (8.30am to 5.00pm) you should contact Children’s Services either by phone on 0345 050 7666

​​

At all other times you should contact the Out of Hours Service: 0800 833 408

For all emergency situations please call 999. Should a person be a victim of this crime, our advice is to report it immediately to police.
