Where a child is suffering significant harm, or is likely to do so, we have a legal duty to take action to protect that child. We also have a duty to promote the welfare of a child in need of additional support, even if they are not suffering harm or are at immediate risk.
Soham Village College's staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children and we work with social care, the police, health services and other services to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Miss M Wilcox, Assistant Head is the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead and there is a dedicated safeguarding team within the school. The team provide support to staff members to carry out their safeguarding duties and liaise closely with other services such as children’s social care.
