Safeguarding

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

  • Safeguarding policy
  • Bullying policy

We work in partnership with parents and external agencies to ensure that the students achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution to both their learning and the wider community.

There may be occasions when we may have concerns about a student and this may mean that we have to consult with external agencies.  We follow the Department of  Education Safeguarding guidance and work within their framework and good practice guidelines.

Concerned about your own child?

If you have any safeguarding concerns (safeguarding: The process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully) please report them to your child’s Pastoral Coordinator.
