Safeguarding

Keeping young people safe is a key element of all the work we do.  We have clear policies and procedures in place and a wealth of expertise amongst our staff, who take part in regular training as part of their continued professional development. You can access our safeguarding related policies by clicking on the links below:

Our Safeguarding Principles

  • The welfare of the child is paramount
  • All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, have equal rights to protection
  • All staff have an equal responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest a child is at risk of harm
  • Pupils and staff involved in child protection issues will receive appropriate support

Part of our commitment to safeguarding is to support students and parents by increasing awareness of the types of issues faced by young people in society today, as well as providing the guidance, advice and resources which can help to address those issues.

If you need support with a wellbeing / child protection issue, or as a parent / carer you have a concern about a young person in school, please contact reception and ask to speak to a member of our Designated Safeguarding Team, detailed below.
