We are committed to making sure that our school is a safe and happy place to be.  Pupils are regularly reminded how to keep themselves safe, this maybe during lessons, assembly time or through visitors to school. All children will be taught in line with the school’s safeguarding curriculum. Everybody in school takes health and safety very seriously. If you see anything that could be improved please mention it to a member of staff.  All children in school are regularly reminded about who they can talk to if they feel worried, sad or upset.  This includes the two members of staff who are responsible for safeguarding children.



There are two Safeguarding Leads in school, Mrs Knowles is our Designated Safeguarding Lead. Mrs Smith is our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, but is currently on Maternity leave. Mrs Rebecca Moran is covering this post as Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead in her absence.

Our Governor Mrs L. Brunning supports on safeguarding on our Governing body.
