Everyone who works or volunteers in school has a duty to keep children safe and to inform the Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mr Swarbrooke) if they have any concerns about the welfare of a child. In Mr Swarbrooke's absence, Mrs Didcott or Miss Hitchcock deputise (Deputy Safeguarding Leads). Mrs Helen Roberts is our link governor for safeguarding and child protection and can be contacted via the school.

The documents and links below have been assembled to enable staff and volunteers to carry out their duties in relation to safeguarding and child protection.
