When concerns of a Safeguarding or Child Protection nature are raised we will contact parents to discuss these. In some cases we will need to refer our concerns to the Multi Agency Referral Unit for further advice and possible assessment. As part of our duty of care, safeguarding records are held securely and confidentially within the school.
If you have any Safeguarding concerns please speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team on the poster below, alternatively the poster displays the numbers for the Multi Agency Referral Unit if it is out of school hours or you wish to make your own referral.
