Safeguarding

The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our highest priority. There are links on this page to our policies, but above all, it is the care that our staff show for students and the respect that students have for staff and one another that makes young people feel safe and supported. We promise to do all we can to promote a safe, supportive and caring school.

For information and advice, and to report concerns directly to The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), click on REPORT below. 

CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency, and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP is here to help young people (up to age 18) who have been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online or in the real world.
