Protecting Children

All child care, schools and education providers take children’s welfare seriously and help protect them

If you are worried about the wellbeing of a child you need to speak to someone about it.  You can contact our Children FIRST Team to raise your concerns.

If a staff member feels a child may be being abused or neglected, they have tell our Children’s Social Care Team.

All schools have a safeguarding officer. If you have any concerns, you can talk to them.

For more information about safeguarding, visit the Bournemouth and Poole Local Safeguarding Children Board website.
