If you are concerned about a child’s welfare please contact Helen Carnell and provide a detailed record of your concern. Please do not investigate the concern yourself.
From time to time student information may be shared with third party agencies where welfare concerns have been raised. These concerns will be shared with the student’s parents/carers initially unless their involvement places the child at risk.
For the latest information from the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Children Board please visit http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/nscb.
