Child Protection & Safeguarding

At Maidensbridge Primary School, we are all committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people within the our school grounds and beyond.

The school has a Child Protection Policy and Safeguarding children policy which can be read by visiting our Policies page on this website. Alternatively, we are happy to supply this document on request from the school office.


The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at Maidensbridge Primary School is Mrs K Thomas (Headteacher)


If you are concerned about a child, then you can come and speak to Mrs Thomas at anytime.

You can also speak to any of the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads for our school:


Mrs Mason

Mr Pearson

Alternatively you can call Dudley Children’s Social Care.  During office hours call the children's services referral and advice service on 0300 555 0050 (9:00am – 5:00pm Mon-Fri).  For out of office hours, contact the Emergency Duty Team on 0300 555 8574 or in an emergency call 999.

If you contact Dudley safeguarding you will speak to a professional who will listen to your concerns. They may take a few details and might need to contact you again but your concern will be dealt with quickly and appropriately.

You do not need to provide your name or give contact details if you do not wish to do so.  Anonymous calls will not be ignored.

It is EVERYONE's responsibility to safeguard children and protect them from harm!
