Safeguarding and Pupil Well-being
Your child’s safety and wellbeing is very important to us. They regularly receive guidance and support in school about how to keep themselves safe but we recognise that sometimes, as parents and carers, you may also wish to seek advice or support regarding an issue which is affecting your child. We are developing this section of the school website to signpost you to resources and information that you may find helpful on a range of issues that affect our young people. We are also developing a similar page on the school intranet for our students so that they can access support independently as well.
