We work closely together with parents, carers, community figures and a range of external professionals in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our pupils.

We follow closely the statutory guidance from the Department for Education. Click the link for the September 2018 guidance for 'keeping children safe in education'. If you have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of any child, please contact the school’s designated Lead for Child Protection; Jane Sawyer or the person who deputises in this role, Catherine Hullis.

Prevent Duty

Working positively to protect young people from radicalisation.
You may have heard about the Prevent programme which aims to prevent young people from being radicalised by, for example, far right extremists or religious extremists.
In school we have a duty to care for the children and take note of any child who is at risk of radicalisation, regardless of their background. We also have to take steps to help prevent children being exposed to extremist ideas. Our overriding concern is that children feel safe and also express tolerance towards all cultures and religions, even when personal views may be different.
See our full page on our Prevent Duty here. You can pick up a leaflet on our Prevent Strategy from the main office, or see the document at the bottom of this page to download a digital copy of our guide.
