Child Protection and Safeguarding – it’s everyone’s responsibility!
Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents and carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child, please contact the school’s Designated Safeguarding Team.

Operation Encompass This operation is a national partnership between all schools, families and the Police.The intention is that all parties will be informed immediately of any reported domestic abuse.The reason for this relates directly to the impact that domestic abuse has upon the success of young people in education. Children can be victims of domestic abuse when they are directly targeted for violence/abuse or if they are accidentally assaulted in an incident with others.
Children can also be seriously affected by witnessing domestic abuse.If the Police are made aware of an incident of domestic abuse, they will notify the school by 11am of the following morning. The school will then decide the appropriate support that is required for the student. The information will only be shared with the appropriate members of staff.
