Safeguarding means looking out for and trying to protect others in our community who are vulnerable or may be at risk of harm. If you think that someone is at risk, you need to raise an alarm. Everyone can make a difference.

If you have safeguarding concerns you can tell a member of staff or contact our Designated Safeguarding Officer, Assistant Principal Lisa Potter on 07966 189 883 / 0118 937 3605 /  You can also email
