If you are concerned about a child’s welfare please contact Helen Thorpe and provide a detailed record of your concern. Please do not investigate the concern yourself.

From time to time, pupil information may be shared with third party agencies where welfare concerns have been raised. These concerns will be shared with the pupil’s parents/carers initially unless their involvement places the child at risk.
