Our school policy on Safeguarding and Child Protection can be found here.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Rachel Atwell, with cover provided by Gavin Englefield and Samantha Banner.

The safety and welfare of our students is paramount and full details of our approach to Care, Guidance and Support are found here.  All adults working in the school are aware of their duty to protect children from harm and abuse, promote their welfare and be alert to indications that any student might be at risk of harm or abuse.  They are aware that this could happen to any child and that any concerns need to be referred on.

If you are concerned about the safety or welfare of any pupil in the school, please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead via the School Office (020 8773 2931).

COVID-19 Note

The school's safeguarding and child protection policy is in full operation, with adaptations made to our practice to reflect the move to remote education for most pupils. The Designated Safeguarding Lead and two deputies are readily available during each school day and can be contacted in the normal way. We continue to liaise with relevant agencies to determine the best ways to maintain contact and offer support to pupils who may be vulnerable. Our daily routines (e.g. lesson registers) enable us to ascertain that all pupils are able to access remote education support.

The School’s Duty of Care

We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our students under the Education Act 2002 and Children Act 1999 by identifying any child where welfare concerns exist and taking action to address them in partnership with families and other agencies where appropriate.
