Safeguarding/Wellbeing

Safeguarding / Wellbeing

The safety and well-being of our students is paramount. A copy of the school’s Safeguarding policy can be found on the Policies section of this website.

The Designated Safeguard Lead (DSL) is Mr Mussett, and Mr Morgan and Miss Rogers are the Deputies (DDSL).

Should you have a concern about any of our students outside of school hours, please call  0345 603 7627 or contact the Police.

Parents who are worried about the well-being or their own child can also contact EWMHS (Emotional Well-being Mental Health Service) on 0300 300 1600.
