Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy

Our Designated Safeguarding Leader (DSL) is Mr Warrick Barton (Headteacher).  Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leader (DDSL) is Mr Sam Miller (Senior Teacher).  Our Safeguarding Governor is Jessica Flack.

Our comprehensive safeguarding policy, updated in October 2022, can be found here.  This takes full account of the September 2022 version of Keeping Children Safe in Education.

At the centre of what we do for safeguarding, we "see, hear, believe and act".  This involves taking a "professional curiosity" about families' situations, in the interest of safeguarding children.  If you do have a concern you need to report out of school hours, please do so using our anonymous online reporting link.
