REPORTING A CONCERN

As you know, we take safeguarding very seriously at Beech Grove. If you have a concern or are in need of support, please speak to a member of our safeguarding team. Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), is Karen Turnbull and she is supported by Mrs Huggett, Miss Joyce and Miss Eades (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads). We are here to listen to your concerns, provide additional support and signpost you to the services that can help.

It can be difficult to know what to do if you think a child is at risk. It’s important to remember that if you’ve spotted things that don’t seem right, others will have too. Speaking up can make sure that child and their family, gets help as soon as possible.

If you have a concern about a child or one of our families, please report it to us straight away.  Our contact details are:

Email:  beechgrove@educ.somerset.gov.uk

Telephone:  01823 662438

If you believe a child may be at risk of harm, you can also contact Children's Social Care: 0300 123 2224 or the NSPCC: 0808 800 5000. If you need to speak to a social worker outside of office hours, please phone the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on: 0300 123 23 27.
