Where to find help

Lancaster Independent School for Alternative Learning (formerly Lancaster Steiner School) is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its pupils and protecting them from “significant harm”.

If you suspect a child is being abused consult the current School’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy or follow the steps below:

Report immediately to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). In the absence of the DSL, report to the Deputy DSLs. If the DSL or deputy cannot be contacted, phone the MASH team. The Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) for LCC can be contacted for advice on allegations against staff. If an allegation is made against a member of staff this must be referred to the DSL. If the allegation is against the DSL this must be referred to the Trustee with responsibility for Safeguarding.
