Information & Safeguarding

Safeguarding determines the actions that we take to keep children safe and protect them from harm in all aspects of their school life.  As a school we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our students. 

The actions that we take to prevent harm; to promote wellbeing; to create safe environments; to educate on rights, respect and responsibilities; to respond to specific issues and vulnerabilities all form part of the safeguarding responsibilities of the school.

We want to work in partnership with our parents to ensure the best possible care can be provided for our children.  With this in mind, we look to provide a comprehensive range of information and guidance for our parents, on a host of topical issues that our young people face today.  Information and guidance on internet safety, cyber bullying, sexting, knife crime, sexual harassment and many other relevant topics can be found on various links on this page.  Indeed, the link to ‘Parent Info’ below provides a live feed to regularly updated resources and articles providing up to date information and advice for parents.
