Staff at The Avenue all use the CPOMS electronic recording system to record safeguarding concerns. 
All staff and Governors have read the most up to date Keeping Children Safe in Education document (September 2016).  We also encourage parents/carers to read the document. 
The designated people for safeguarding at The Avenue are -
Mrs Emma Watson - Head Teacher
Miss Jayne Booth - Assistant Head Teacher
Both members of staff have the Level 3 Designated Person qualification. 
Please report any concerns you may have.
Parents/Carers - If you cannot find a designated member of staff please see Miss Bythway or Mrs Palmer in the office who will find you someone to speak to.
