Keeping Safe and E-Safety in and out of school:
If you have concerns either in or out of school, staff are here to support you as appropriate. Often a problem shared is a problem halved, and you should not be concerned about seeking advice if you have a problem, however small you believe it to be. We want you to be able to come to school feeling safe, happy and confident as this is how you learn best, so please speak to one of us if you need to.
Your Tutor, Pastoral Leader or in fact any member of staff you feel comfortable in speaking with, will know what to do or who to point you in the direction of should you need help.
