Child Protection (Safeguarding)

All schools have a major responsibility regarding Child Protection. Should there be any case where a school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, then staff have to follow Child Protection Procedures, which may involve contact with social care.

Our school safeguarding lead is the Senior Assistant Headteacher; Miss A Knight and the deputy safeguarding lead is Mrs C Walklin.

You can find our Safeguarding Policy and Statement on our Policies page and further information on our dedicated Safeguarding page.

Mental Health

You have a young and developing mind, you may need help in understanding how you are feeling, or maybe just need to get something off your chest.  Who do you feel comfortable telling this information to?  Friend, Teacher, Parent/Family, maybe a support line?  Below is a selection of resources for you, but remember, if you need any help or you are struggling contact someone; your teachers are at the end of an email.
