If your child has a safeguarding concern, we recommend they speak to their class teacher in the first instance, or another member of staff they feel comfortable with.

If you have a safeguarding concern, you can speak to any member of staff, but we recommend the first point of contact is the school’s DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead).
