Our school policy for safeguarding and child protection:

2 term-time monitored email accounts that can be used to quickly notify the school of:

  • - safeguarding concerns
  • - incidents of bullying

All pupils have been informed that they should speak with their ‘go to’ person (i.e. their Form tutor) or a member of staff they trust if they have any concerns about the safety of themselves or a fellow pupil.
