Due to day-to-day contact with children, schools are particularly well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in behaviour, or failure to develop. Parents should be aware, therefore, that where it appears to a member of school staff that a child may have been abused, the school is required, as part of the local Child Protection Procedures, to report their concern to the Social Services Department immediately.
Parent / carers who have any questions or worries regarding Child Protection issues should speak to either:
Mrs L Sennett- Head Teacher & Child Protection Officer (DSL)
Mrs D Day - Pastoral Care Leader & Child Protection Officer (DSL)
If you think a child is in immediate danger, please telephone the police on 999.
