Safeguarding our Students.
At Moreton School, we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect everyone who works in our school to share this commitment.
Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them.
If you, as a student have any issues then please speak to a member of staff. There are posters around school with details of the safeguarding team if you would prefer to speak to them.
Outside of school hours the following services are available to you.
