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.
