Safeguarding and Online Safety

  We are an effective safeguarding school.


' Many pupils benefit from the school's early intervension and effective multi-agency working. Robust procedures are in place for Child Protection' (Ofsted 2018) 



The safety and welfare of your children is our paramount concern. All parents are asked to fill in a full contacts and information sheet on entry to school using our 'Personal Information Form' and we will ask for two emergency contacts in case parents are not avaliable. We will always make contact with a parent if your child is ill or has sustained an injury. 

Safety checks are carried out by our Safeguarding Management Team and Governors.
