We are committed to safeguarding our learners and ensuring that all of their needs are met.

Everyone who works in the school has a responsibility to keep our children safe.

It is our belief that no child should suffer harm or neglect, either at home or at school.

If you need to speak to us regarding a safeguarding concern, please ask for a member of the Safeguarding Team at the School Office.

All staff take their responsibilities seriously and the children are taught that they can speak to any adult. All staff undergo safeguarding training led by the Cheshire East SCIES Team and they are regularly updated in staff meetings or via our safeguarding communication boards. All adults working within our school are DBS checked and all safer recruitment checks are made. Visitors must wear visible lanyards.

Concerns about a member of staff must be reported to Mrs Cathy Elsley or our Chair of Local Advisory Board, Dr Audrey Skidmore. They can be contacted at the School Office.

Or, for any issues beyond the school, if you believe that a child or their wellbeing may be in danger, please do not hesitate to report it directly to Cheshire East Social Services on 0300 123 5012.
