At Oakwood, the health, safety and welfare of our children are of paramount importance. We are committed to ensuring that our children always feel safe and secure through a strong culture of safeguarding. This involves a range of policies, procedures and support arrangements. It is only when children feel safe and secure that they are ready to learn.

          Designated Safeguarding Lead – Ms Z Buckley, Headteacher

          Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead – Ms J Stubbs, FKS Leaders and SENCo

          Safeguarding Governor – Mr J McDonnell

          Chair of Governors – Mrs P Hopkins and Mrs J Elliott (Co-Chairs)
