Woolston Brook School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare, both physical and emotional, of every pupil both inside and outside of the school premises. We implement a whole-school preventative approach to managing safeguarding concerns, ensuring that the wellbeing of pupils is at the forefront of all action taken.

Our policy (which can be found on the school website) sets out a clear and consistent framework for delivering this promise, in line with safeguarding legislation and statutory guidance.

If you are concerned that a child, young person or a vulnerable adult is at risk of or experiencing abuse or neglect, or you yourself are a victim of abuse, you should report it straight away so that the appropriate services can take the necessary actions to prevent harm.

If you have any concerns Report any safeguarding concerns about a child or young person to Children’s Safeguarding/Social Work Team on 01925 443322. Outside of office hours ring 01925 444400.

If you believe a crime has been committed contact the police on 101.
