If you are concerned about a child's welfare or worried they are being abused, please contact one of the safeguarding team in school. Alternatively, you can make direct contact with the Local Authority via the link below.


The school is secure during the school day, so all visitors are asked to report to the main entrance. Please be mindful that for everybody’s safety, identification procedures will be carried out and you will be asked to wear a badge.

All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.
