Safeguarding

How do we safeguard your students?

Safeguarding underpins all that we do.

Everything that we do is started with the question: "Is this safe for the students? the staff? the school? the family?"

Our dedication to making things as safe as possible is unequivocal. The safety of everyone involved remains the top priority, and we always endeavour to make sure that our procedures and practice is professional, current and safe.

Communication

Communication of progress and in case of need occur often. To make our processes as safe as possible we:
