Child Protection and Safeguarding
The safety and welfare of our pupils is of the utmost importance to us at school. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents/carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child, please contact the school's Designated Lead for Child Protection and Safeguarding , Mrs J. Jenkins - Headteacher or in her absence Ms C. Parker.
