Our commitment to our students’ health & wellbeing

Aim:
We consider the health, safety and wellbeing of our students to be of the utmost
importance and strive to promote the welfare of our students, believing ‘Every Child
Matters’ and supporting them and enabling them to keep themselves and others
safe.

Student’s Mentors are the first port of call should you have a concern, you can also
contact the Principal. If you have any concerns of a safeguarding nature please
contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Elaine King, who is available to support
and offer help when students are experiencing issues both in and out of school
through providing a welcoming and supportive environment.

Mrs King liaises with a number of outside agencies who are further able to support
our students including PCAMHS, CAMHS, Health and Social Care and Early
Intervention Services.

risk of significant harm in which case referrals are made to partner agencies for their
support.
