The safety and wellbeing of all our students is our primary aim. Staff, students, parents / carers and governors can raise any issues or concerns about the safety or welfare of children and know that they will be listened to and taken seriously. This is achieved by maintaining an ethos which is all about promoting the welfare of our young people and ensuring that all staff are skilled and confident in all aspects of safeguarding
Please note that we have a duty to refer any safeguarding issues to external agencies as appropriate, and that we always do.
The Senior Designated Officer for child protection is Rupert Poole
The Deputy Designated Office for child protection is Alastair Smith
The Safeguarding Officer is Cheryl Elliott
Your child's Year Team Leader will also be able to offer advice and support.
It is the responsibility of all adults to ensure the safeguarding of children
If you are a visitor to the school and have concerns for a child’s welfare it is your responsibility to inform a member of staff immediately.
In some circumstances you may feel the need to report directly to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH). They can be emailed or telephoned.
