The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and all staff appointed to work at the School undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post.
The School's Child Protection Lead Officer is Mrs Jane Thomas, who is the Deputy Head (Pastoral). Working alongside her are two other Child Protection Officers, Miss Hilary Smith (Assistant Head Co-curriculum) and Mrs Emma Sheppard (Head of Lower School). The School's Child Protection Governor is Mrs Carole Pierce.
If anyone has any child protection concerns regarding a member of the School then they should contact a member of the Child Protection team. All staff are aware that any child protection concerns must be passed to one of the Child Protection Officers as a matter of urgency.
The School's Child Protection Officers undertake formal refresher training every two years and in addition to this they regularly attend local network meetings and other relevant courses. Whole staff training is conducted every three years. On joining the School all new staff are inducted in Child Protection matters and they also undertake training, in the form of a DVD produced by the School.
