What to do if you have concerns about a child

We are an Operation Encompass School

Please see our Safeguarding page for information about our safeguarding policy and procedures, including the PREVENT duty to protect children from radicalisation and Operation Encompass

If you think a child is in immediate danger please call 999.

If you think a child may have been abused outside school - if you are a friend, relative or neighbour of the child, call the Leicestershire First Response Children's Duty Team on 0116 305 0005 where you will be able to speak to a Social Worker about your worries. The Social Worker will discuss these with you and take as much information as possible. You will be able to remain anonymous if you wish and a Social Worker will discuss this with you.

If you think the abuse may have happened in school or you have any other concerns, please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead Mrs Liz Martin or our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads Mr Matt Hough or Mrs May Ho on 01858 465479.
