Safeguarding

General Safeguarding

Our students' wellbeing is important to us. We have a large number of trained Designated Safeguarding Leads across the Trust who will be leading safeguarding at the school when it opens in September 2022. If you have any safeguarding concerns prior to the school opening please contact your child’s school Designated Safeguarding Lead. Additional Safeguarding information and further websites and guidance can be found below which parents/carers and students are welcome to access.

Information on contacting the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) for safeguarding is available here: View / Download

Online Safety

Responsible use of Social Media and Mobile Phones

In today's social media age, children now have access to each other more than ever via social media and their mobile phones and devices.  As a school we strongly encourage clear boundaries on using phones and the Internet. Parents and guardians should not allow their children to play age inappropriate video games or to attend age inappropriate events.

Parents and guardians, as bill payers, have a responsibility for how mobile phones are used and can install controls on phones enabling them to filter which games, apps and websites their child can use, as well as monitor their usage. Be open and transparent with your child and discuss how they use their phone to help them understand what is appropriate and what is expected of them. 

We regularly publish information for parents and carers about the use of the Internet and social media and hope the links below are helpful to you:
