Reporting concerns about pupil welfare

If you have a concern about the welfare or safety of a child, please do not hesitate to contact the school’s safeguarding team. The school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are Mrs Mayston, Mr Kirk, Mrs Dennis and Mrs Denny – their email addresses are available on this website and you can call the school office and speak to one of them to confidentially report a concern.

Also, if you want to report an incident or suspicion of abuse, you can contact:

  • the local authority child protection team – even outside normal office hours
  • the police – call 999 in an emergency or otherwise 101
  • the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP). This is the UK’s national police agency for dealing with child protection, particularly online abuse. If  you’re  worried about someone’s behaviour towards a child online, you can report this online at www.ceop.police.uk
