Our Safeguarding Ethos

The child’s welfare is of paramount importance. Our school will establish and maintain an ethos where pupils feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe. Children at our school will be able to talk freely to any member of staff at our school if they are worried or concerned about something.

If you are worried about a child or young person, or you need some additional support, the Multi Agency Support Hub are able to support 24 hours a day. Please click here  to access
