At Dean Bank Primary and Nursery School our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr Will Wood is the primary Designated Teacher for Looked after Children. Mrs Pauline Northcott (Headteacher), Mr Chris Murphy (Deputy Safeguarding Lead) and Mrs Katie Hay (currently working towards NASENCO qualification) also have the required knowledge and training for the role. Mrs Sharon Temple is our ‘Looked After Children’ governor. They ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
We work very closely with all the team around a looked after child. We are involved in developing the PEP and use Pupil Premium to ensure that any specific interventions are implemented.
