If you are worried about any child, or have any concerns you would like to discuss with them, please speak to them in person or contact them via the school office.
Everyone has a responsibility for Safeguarding children and young people.  Anyone who comes in to contact with children and families has a role to play.


Safeguarding legislation and government guidance states that safeguarding means

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children's health or development
  • ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome
