The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

Parents/carers can feel confident that careful procedures are in place to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children.  Staff hope that parents/carers and students will feel free to talk about any concerns or worries which may affect educational progress and that they will see the school as a safe place due to good relationships.  Students will be taken seriously if they seek help from a member of staff.  Parents/carers will normally be consulted, and their consent obtained before any referral is made to an agency outside the school.  However, staff cannot guarantee to consult parents/carers first, or to keep children’s concerns confidential, if a referral must be made to the appropriate agencies in order to safeguard the child’s welfare.  For more information see the Safeguarding Policy and Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults Policy.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is: Mrs Perry

The Deputy DSLs are: Mr Stokes, Miss Hill, Mr Dale and Mrs Evans.
