Mr McIntyre is our Designated Safeguarding Lead. He is supported by Mr Parkin and Mrs Annable as part of their roles as Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher, by Mrs Jenkinson, Mrs Wiggins and Mrs Holmes. The team meet regularly to discuss any matters relating to Safeguarding and Child Protection but are available on a daily basis should you wish to speak with one of them. 

We are not here to investigate or pass judgement, but to support our children and families in ensuring they are safe from harm (emotional, neglect, physical, sexual).

Don’t feel that a worry can be too small, they are not, it is important that you talk. To contact us, please pop in or give us a ring on:
