We all have a statutory duty to safeguard all children and promote their welfare. If you have any concerns about any child or feel that something may be troubling them you should tell a member of the safeguarding team straight away, particularly if you have serious concerns about physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect.

Issues such as a child's appearance, poor personal hygiene, risk taking lifestyle/behaviours etc should also be reported to a member of the Safeguarding Team. We would rather have too many small referrals than miss a worrying situation. We also may have other information which added to your small concern builds into a worrying picture.

We strive to ensure all our students meet the Governments Agenda for the Every Child Matters Outcomes and believe passionately that all our students have a right to ;

  • Be Healthy
  • Stay Safe
  • Enjoy and Achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve Economic Well-Being
