At Beechcliffe School we have a safeguarding team who meet once a fortnight in a morning to formerly liaise and update each other to ensure all information in relation to safeguarding pupils is shared and actions taken if necessary. The team also meet for a longer meeting once a month, this meeting includes updating on all pupils with support services involved, next steps for ongoing issues, discussions relating to supporting families who do not meet the threshold for outside agency support.
