School Safeguarding


Safeguarding is everyone’s business, and we take the safeguarding of our pupils very seriously.

In school, Nicola Foulds - Head Teacher - is our Designated Safeguarding Lead. Our Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Anna Burgin-Smith.

Here you will find a range of information leaflets, especially for parents, on a range of safeguarding issues. Our latest policy is available by clicking on the attachment at the bottom of this page. You can also get a copy of any of this information from the school office.

A website called ‘Educate against hate‘ is designed to offer practical advice and information for parents, teachers and school leaders about extremism and radicalisation. The website has been created with consultation from organisations such as Childnet and the UK Safer Internet Centre, and includes information on; warning signs of danger, steps concerned parents can take and will have advice regarding preventing all forms of extremism, including, for example, far-right views.
