Our safeguarding team is:

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Roz Winter (Principal)
Deputy Designated Safeguarding lead: Lucy Grice (Pupil Support Manager, Young Carers Champion)

Our school has established and maintains an ethos where pupils feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe. Children at our school are able to talk to any member of staff if they are worried or concerned about something.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding our pupils. We recognise that our staff play a particularly important role as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children to prevent concerns from escalating. All staff are encouraged to maintain curiosity when working with children and young adults.

All staff and regular visitors will, through training and induction, know how to recognise indicators of concern, how to respond to a disclosure from a child and how to record and report this information. 

Throughout our curriculum and pastoral support programmes, we provide activities and opportunities for children to develop the skills they need to identify risks and stay safe. This will also be extended to include material that will encourage our children to develop essential life skills. We have a programme of PSHE, and deliver a range of safeguarding related workshops, including from the NSPCC, PCSO, and CEOP. The pastoral team also deliver a programme of Emotional Coaching Mentoring that supports mental health needs. Children receive assemblies around risk, contextual safeguarding issues and keeping yourself safe. We put pupil voice at the centre of what we do, listening to and working with the School Council.

At all times we will work in partnership and endeavour to establish effective working relationships with parents, carers and colleagues from other agencies in line with Working Together to Safeguard Children.

Our values are underpinned by Keeping Children Safe in Education.
