Keeping You Safe

Safeguarding and Keeping Safe

Keeping you safe is our absolute priority and safeguarding is embedded into all aspects of our school. We are committed to keeping you safe both inside and outside of school and have staff (Designated Safeguarding Leads) who are specially trained to deal with issues relating to safeguarding and child protection. As a student of Moreton School you will be aware of who your Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are, know where to find them and also know that they are available to support you should you ever need them. In addition to our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs), all of our staff receive regular safeguarding training and are available to you should you feel more confident or comfortable to share your initial concerns with them.

We take extremely seriously our duty of care to you as our students, to your families and to our staff. The aim of our child protection and safeguarding policy is to promote welfare and to make all within our school feel safe. We understand that life isn’t always straightforward and that different people may need different support at different times and our team of staff are here to support you whenever you need.

If you have any concerns about your own safety or that of any other child, please speak to one of our Designated staff listed below or to another adult in the building.
