Our top priority at Humshaugh First School is to keep our children safe.  Because of this, we have two members of staff and one governor who have received further safeguarding training.

It is a legal requirement that each school should have a named school Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for Child Protection.

In our school we have two members of staff who have received the training to be DSL teachers.

They are:

Mrs Jude Long- Head Teacher

Mrs Karen Blythe - Senior Teacher and Assistant DSL

The DSL follows the guidance laid down in:

DfE document - Keeping Children Safe in Education - September 2022.

And the Inter-agency Procedures produced by the Northumberland Children and Adults Safeguarding Partnership (NCASP).

Our named Safeguarding Governor is Herbie Newell.
