Our school recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils. We will endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
Our Designated Safeguard Leader is Mrs S Aston (or Mrs S Littlewood in her absence); child protection issues are her responsibility in school. Both 'Working Together to Safeguard Children (July 2018)' and 'Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2019)' require that all schools have a Designated Safeguard Lead in place to deal with child protection concerns and in Mrs Aston's/Mrs Littlewood's absence, Miss Finley (Deputy Head) and Mrs Preece (HLTA) are always available.
If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of children outside of school hours, please use the links below for further information.
