Safeguarding Information


We all have a statutory duty to “safeguard and promote the welfare of children”.

If you have any concerns about the health and safety of a child at this school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of school staff straight away. Some issues e.g. a child’s appearance, hygiene, general behaviour, can be shared with any teacher or member of support staff in the school.


Do not worry that you may be reporting small matters – we would rather that you tell us things which turn out to be small than miss a worrying situation.


However, if you think the matter is very serious and may be related to a child protection concern, e.g. physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect, you must talk to one of the people below immediately.


Any allegation or disclosure involving a member of staff must be reported directly to the Head, unless it involves the Head and then it should be reported directly to the Chair of the Governing Body.


The Safeguarding Leads for this school is:







      Zoe Poonawala                                 


The Deputy Safeguarding Leads for this school are :










    Carla Ribeiro                             Kate Sandilands                   Anna Sandilands                    Diane Nimmo
