Safeguarding Statement

At The Blandford School we recognise that the welfare of children is paramount and
we take seriously our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of the young people in our care.

Safeguarding is:
• protecting children from maltreatment;
• preventing the impairment of children’s health or development;
• ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
• taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

All children have the right to be safeguarded from harm or exploitation whatever their:
• age
• health or disability
• gender or sexual orientation
• race, religion, belief or first language
• political or immigration status

Governors, staff and regular volunteers in this school understand the importance of taking appropriate action and are committed to working in partnership with children, their parents/carers and other agencies in order to safeguard children and promote their welfare.

Dear Parent/Carer

On the advice of Dorset Council, due to storm Eunice all schools in Dorset have been advised to close due to the Red Weather Warning in place for Dorset from the Met Office.  Therefore, The Blandford School will be closed in line with this advice on Friday, 18 February and no school transport will be running throughout Dorset.  School will reopen on Monday, 28 February 2022.


For Friday, 18 February work will be set for students by teachers on TEAMS.


We hope you all have an enjoyable half term and look forward to seeing students again on Monday, 28 February 2022.


Yours sincerely


Duncan Smith

Deputy Headteacher
