Safeguarding Children at School is our Number 1 priority. On this page, we will include information and advice to parents to help them ensure their child stays safe.







The NSPCC provides excellent advice for parents, professionals and children.

Our Designated Person for Child Protection is Ms Soulsby - parents are able to speak with her in confidence regarding any safeguarding issue or concern.

All staff have received Safeguarding training, and are aware of the signs of child abuse. Where there are concerns, the school operates a robust process for reporting and referring concerns, and works in partnership with colleagues in Children's Social Care and beyond.
