Where can I access support in the school?
In the first instance speak with your child’s class teacher, either before school or at the end of the day. If you wish to speak with them at another time this can either be arranged in advance with the class teacher or through the school office.
Safeguarding concerns -The Pastoral Team make up the Safeguarding Team with Lindsay Higgins, as Senior Designated Person for Safeguarding.
If you have a safeguarding concern, please speak to the main office and a member of the team will contact you as a priority.
Next step is to speak with a member of the Safeguarding and Inclusion Team.
