'Together We Learn. Together We Safeguard.'

All members of the Field Lane School community aim to establish and maintain a safe and stimulating environment where children:

  • feel secure

  • are safe from harm

  • are encouraged to talk to adults they can trust 

  • are listened to

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are:

Hilary Towers-Islam (Headteacher) and Asif Lorgat (Deputy Head)

Safeguarding Governor: Sanah Islam

Through regular training, all staff are able to recognise the signs of abuse and understand their responsibilities when a child may be at risk of harm.

All staff are responsible for recording and passing on any concerns to  the designated staff. We also commit to working in partnership with external agencies in order to support and protect children. 

It is everybody's responsibility to make sure children and young people feel safe and cared for. It is important that you know who to speak to if you are concerned about  ANY child in or out of school. Passing on information could help to safeguard young people.

You can speak to any of our staff in confidence about any issues regarding the safety and well-being of children.

In the event of an urgent Safeguarding issue, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Ms H Towers on 01924 326378

Only children free from physical and emotional harm will develop to realise their full potential and entitlement.

Whilst we always strive to work confidentially and in partnership with parents, it should be noted that, where there are concerns relating to the safety of a child, in some situations, it is necessary to share information with other agencies and authorities without parental consent.

Safer Recruitment

In line with the ‘Safer Recruitment’ guidance, all staff, including volunteers who have access to children, in our school have been carefully selected and screened and all have had enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks. Should allegations be made against members of staff we will follow LA guidance in dealing with them. This guidance ensures that the safety of the child is paramount.


Parents and carers send their children to school each day with the expectation that the school provides a safe and secure environment in which their children can flourish. We, therefore, have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. In order to achieve this, a wide range of measures are in place.
