Meet The Team

At Woodlands we have a team of safeguarding leads who work closely together to ensure all our children, and their families, are safe. 

Our safeguarding team can be contacted in person via the main office or by telephone on 0161 359 5698

Designated Safeguarding Lead

Overall responsibility for safeguarding sits with our DSL. If you have any queries or concerns around the welfare of a child or any aspect of safeguarding at Woodlands, the DSL is your first point of contact.
