Keeping Safe - Speak Out and Stay Safe
If you have a worry or you feel upset about something that has happened at home or at school or you feel unsafe, you can talk to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads in school.
The Designated Safeguarding Leads are:
Miss Tidey (Deputy Headteacher), Mr Cooke (Headteacher) and Mrs Moss (Family Support Worker).
You will have seen posters around school displaying photographs of Miss Tidey, Mr Cooke and Mrs Moss; this is to remind you of who you can talk to in school.
If you are not able to talk to an adult at home or an adult in school about a worry that you have, then you can speak to someone at ChildLine.
You can contact Childline about anything. Whatever your worry, it's better out than in. ChildLine are there to support you and help you find ways to cope. There are lots of different ways to get in touch with them.
You can ring them on 0800 1111 or speak to them online.
Because of the coronavirus, ChildLine have had to make some changes to how ChildLine works. For now, you can only speak to a ChildLine counsellor online or on the phone from 9am – midnight.
