Safeguarding

All members of the Safeguarding Team are passionate about supporting the students in our school. All of the team are skilled and experienced and can advise and support you with all different aspects of safeguarding and welfare.  

We pride ourselves on giving students and families realistic, sensible and practical advice and guidance with a no-nonsense approach. We aim to do this whilst being positive about the challenges and opportunities that are faced with the families and students in our school.
