How we safeguard children at school

Children's safety and wellbeing is our highest priority. Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy sets out how we ensure we safeguard children effectively. For further information please also refer to the seperate sections on Online Safety and Prevent (radicalisation, extremism and terrorism).


What to do if you have a safeguarding concern relating to school

You should report any safeguarding concerns to Mr Towe or Mr Pengelly at the earliest opportunity. if your concerns relate to the conduct of a member of staff, please report them to Mr Towe then report to Sophie Wheatley, our safeguarding governor, by asking the school office to contact her on your behalf.


What to do if you have safeguarding concerns outside school

If you believe a child to be at imminent risk you should phone the police without delay. If you are concerned that a child or vulnerable adult may be abused (including neglect), you should telephone the Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU) to discuss your concerns.

MARU phone number: 0300 1231 116/ out of office hours 01208 251300.

The NSPCC can also offer support if you have concerns - telephone 0808 8005000.

Please do share any safeguarding concerns with Mr Towe, as the Designated Safeguarding Lead, but please don't delay contacting the MARU/ relevant authority.
