If you are concerned about a potential safeguarding incident that may have happened in a live lesson, you can report this to the safeguarding team. To do this, please contact and state in your email that this is for the attention of the safeguarding team.

We have a safeguarding lead in school everyday and will deal with your information as soon as we can. If it is not considered to be a safeguarding matter, it may be passed to a year leader to contact you. Thank you in advance for your support.
