Safeguarding in schools means

  • creating safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practice
  • ensuring that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children
  • making sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice
    teaching children and young people about staying safe
  • maintaining an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem.

All adults who work in our school have to have a satisfactory clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).


If you are worried about the safety or welfare of a child, you can talk in confidence to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads - Clare Masterson (Family Worker) Anton Dworzak (Deputy Head or Catherine Doberska (Headteacher).    

In their absence, you should speak to Miss Sian Hawes (SENCO)
