Urgent concerns about a child (outside these hours)

We use a safeguarding system called CPOMS.
Most schools operate a manual (in many cases hand written and paper based) system for the reporting of incidents, including potential Child Protection issues. CPOMS has enabled us to improve our management of child protection and similar incidents and actions, whilst reducing paperwork and administration.
St Alban's Catholic Primary School participates in Operation Encompass which is a partnership between South Yorkshire Police and Education, supported by Doncaster Safeguarding Children's Board.
