Keeping Children Safe in Education
If you are concerned about a child's welfare or worried they are being abused please contact one of the safeguarding team in school. Alternatively you can make direct contact with the Local Authority via the link below for South West Child Protection Procedures website
Safer Recruitment and Visitors
The school is secure during the school day, so all visitors are asked to report to the main entrance. Please be mindful that for everybody’s safety, identification procedures will be carried out and you will be asked to wear a badge.
All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.

Sometimes children find things online that aren't always appropriate - even when they're not looking for them. By using parental controls, you can help protect your child from viewing harmful content - and asking awkward questions. If you need help setting up controls on your child's devices, you can call the free O2 & NSPCC Online Safety Helpline for expert advice on 0808 800 5002.
