The school’s four DSLs meet at least weekly to discuss
vulnerable children in school. All conversations and actions are recorded on
CPOMS. As a team, the DSLs discuss the best course of action for each child or
family be that additional help in school, liaising with parents, signposting to
other supporting agencies or referring to other supporting agencies.
