Safeguarding is extremely important to us and we take our responsibilities seriously. If you are worried about a child, you should speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mr Weights: 01977 682388 email@example.com) or Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mrs Ronicle or Mrs Starr: 01977 682388 firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com). Both can also be contacted through the school office.

In most circumstances, the school will endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents/carers about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents/carers.
