The school has a duty to ensure that all parents understand our responsibility to safeguard the wellbeing of all pupils and that this responsibility requires us to have Safeguarding including child protection procedures including online safety. As part of these procedures the school can make a direct referral to the statutory child welfare agencies including the Police and/or Social Services without involving the parents if they have concerns about the safety of any child.

Mrs Keefe (Headteacher) is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)

Mrs Burton (Deputy  Headteacher) and Mrs Kavanagh (SenCo TSF) are the Deputy DSLs.

Our Nominated Governor for Safeguarding is Ms Dyson
