What to do if you are worried about a child

If you have any concerns about the wellbeing or safety of a child at our school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with a member of our Safeguarding Team immediately (see below).

If your concerns relate to a member of staff's suitability to work with children please speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team, in confidence, who will refer the matter to the Headteacher (or Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) who will investigate and consider what action to take.


Our procedures provide a robust framework which enables staff to take appropriate action when they are concerned that a child is being harmed or abused or is at risk of harm or abuse. The prime concern at all stages must be the interests and safety of the child. Where there is a conflict of interest between the child and an adult, the interests of the child must be paramount.
