Safeguarding & Welfare

The safety and care of our pupils is the single most important aspect of our staff's duty to your children.  We take this aspect very seriously and below you will find links to the UK Government's guidance for this, our own policy page which lists our safeguarding and welfare related policies and other links which come under the remit of safeguarding and welfare, such as:

  • Child protection
  • Medical Conditions, Disabilities and Inclusion
  • Health & Safety and First aid
  • SEN
  • Behaviour and Emotional Support
  • Online Safety and Personal Safety Awareness
  • Access and Attendance
  • The PREVENT duty to protect against extremism and radicalisation (linked to British Values)

We have also listed other websites that may be of use to you if you are worried about your own or other children.

Safeguarding Team

You can always speak to any member of staff if you are concerned about a child.  However we do have a team of senior staff who are specifically responsible for safeguarding and they are listed here:

  • Miss Longhurst (Designated Safeguarding Lead - DSL)
  • Mrs Brown (Deputy DSL)
  • Mrs Harvey (Deputy DSL)

Simply contact the school and ask for one of them by name or ask for the DSL/ Safeguarding Lead.  You can also email the DSL directly here:
