Safeguarding and Child Protection

'The school ensures children learn in a safe, caring and enriching environment. Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, on and off line, to develop positive and healthy relationships and how to avoid situations where they might be at risk including by being exploited.'

The school has a statutory responsibility to share any concerns it might have about a child in need of protection with other agencies and in particular police, health and children’s services. Schools are not able to investigate concerns but have a legal duty to refer them. In most instances, the school will be able to inform the parents/carer of its need to make a referral. However, sometimes the school is advised by Children’s Social Care or police that the parent/carer cannot be informed whilst they investigate the matter. We understand the anxiety parents/carers understandably feel when they are not told about any concerns from the outset. The school follows legislation that aims to act in the best interests of the child.

If you have any concerns regarding the safety, health and well being of a child who is a student at our school please call the school office and ask for the relevant Head of Year, Mr York or Mr Whitaker.

Should you need to report a safeguarding concern of an urgent nature outside of our reception opening hours (8am to 5pm Mon - Fri), please contact the police on 999 or Duty and Assessment on 0116 4541004 (Mon - Fri 8am - 6pm) or the Emergency Team (out of hours only 5pm - 8.30am) on 0116 255 1606.
