Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility.

If in any doubt, speak out!

Are YOU concerned about a child? If so, please share your concerns without delay.  You are welcome to come into school and share your concerns with our Designated Safeguarding Leader, Lois Haydon, or our Deputy Safeguarding Leader, Angela Berger.

If you think a child or young person is in immediate danger then please dial 999 and ask for police assistance.

Owing to their day-to-day contact with individual children during term-time, school staff have an important role to play in recognising and taking the appropriate action in cases of suspected child abuse. All staff are familiar with local child protection arrangements and understand their responsibilities in order to safeguard and protect children in their care.

All school staff, both teaching and non-teaching, will immediately report any concerns to the Designated Safeguarding Leader (Mrs. Lois Haydon) or Deputy Safeguarding Leader (Mrs Angela Berger). In cases of suspected abuse, the school is required by South Gloucestershire Council to consult the Social Services Department.

The school takes the issue of safeguarding pupils extremely seriously and has a range of policies which guide our approach:
