Keeping Children Safe

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students is everyone’s responsibility. As school staff, we hold a unique position of trust with our students which means we may be the first people they inform or we may get a feeling that something is not quite right. 

Staff have training in safeguarding, there are rigorous systems in place and students are strongly encouraged to talk to trained safeguarding staff about any issues they may be having.

For further information, please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy Feeling upset or unsafe? Does something not feel right? Are you worried about a friend, student or family member? Speak to a member of your Safeguarding Team:
