Our designated safeguarding officers are: Mr Mennell (Designated safeguarding lead) and Mrs Fletcher (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead). We also have other members from the trust who occasionally work within school. For any child protection concerns or any concerns of a sensitive nature, please do come and speak to any of the members in our team and we will of course be more than happy to help.
The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to establish a dedicated independent helpline for people who have experienced abuse in education.
The helpline will provide both children and adults who have experienced sexual abuse in schools with support and advice, including onward action such as contacting the police if they wish to. The helpline also provides support to parents and professionals. Anyone who gets in touch through this dedicated helpline will also be signposted to other relevant support services available, including Childline, which provides ongoing support and counselling to children and young people.
The dedicated and confidential NSPCC helpline – Report Abuse in Education can be reached on 0800 136 663 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
