No child should suffer harm, either at home or at school. Everyone who works in or visits our school has a responsibility to make sure that all our young people are safe.
Your child’s physical and emotional safety is our priority. Please click here to view our Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy
What should I do if I am worried about a child?
If you are worried about the safety of any young person in our school for any reason, you must report this to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). You can speak to us in person, or contact us via email.
Our school Designated Safeguarding Leads are
Mr Richard McKenzie - Headteacher (Lead DSL)
Mrs Jacqui Shabankareh - Deputy Headteacher (Deputy DSL)
Mrs Marianne McDonnell - Deputy Headteacher (Deputy DSL)
Mrs Ruth Hall - Senior Teacher (Deputy DSL)
We have recently rewritten our Safeguarding Policy in child-friendly language to explain to our pupils the role of the Safeguarding team and how they work to keep children safe.
We have also made a leaflet, also in a child-friendly format, to help the children remember what to do if they have a worry or concern about something, including using the worry box which is located outside Mrs. Shabankareh’s office.
