Children have a right to be cared for and protected, protecting them is everyone’s responsibility. We take very seriously our duty of care to users of the school. We are committed to providing a secure and supportive environment in which children can develop and grow into mature and responsible people. Safeguarding children is an essential part of our holistic approach to ensure that children are protected from abuse and neglect and that every child reaches their full potential. The best interests of the children will always be our priority. As such, there are times we will need to record, monitor and share information with other agencies. We will share concerns about our pupils with the child’s parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that such a move would not be in the child’s best interest.

What you can do?

The school is required to have a designated child protection officer for this purpose. Parents and children should speak to the safeguarding officer if they have any concerns about a child or staff member.If you think a child or young person may be in immediate danger, call 999. Otherwise, contact St Helen's Children’s Social Care on .
