Safeguarding

3 Dimensions is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults in our care and expects all staff and anyone associated with 3 Dimensions to share this commitment.

 

We have a Safegaurding policy and procedures in place which are in accordance with both the Somerset Safeguarding Childrens Board – Working with Children and the Devon Safeguarding Children Board - Workers and Volunteers as main portals for local procedures and statutory guidance. Staff must familiarise themselves with these portals and other procedures and guidance given for the two counties within which we operate. Relevant Government legislation and Statutory guidence documents are also highlighted and these key documents are available in the Staff area of this website. All Directors and staff must ensure they are aware of and adhere to these policies and procedures.

 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies where there are concerns about a students welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with them and their parents/carers first unless we have reason to belive that such a move would be contrary to his/her welfare.
