BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL IS PART OF

Safeguarding

Child Protection and Safeguarding

Barlby High School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students. Each student’s welfare is of paramount importance and we believe that students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.  We achieve this through putting in place robust systems and procedures to manage any concerns reported. We respond immediately to any concerns raised and ensure that these are dealt with appropriately, sensitively and in a timely manner.

If your child is ever concerned about their safety or well-being or about another student, they should talk to someone such as a parent/carer/guardian, and/or a member of staff at school such as their Form Tutor, Year Leader or a member of Student Welfare Team. Alternatively you can also speak to Mrs Hughes, Assistant Principal: Student Welfare and Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Talking about a problem helps, and if the problem cannot be resolved by the member of staff that your child has talked to, they will find other people to help.

We have also produced a Safeguarding and Wellbeing Bulletin which gathers together important information for students and their parents, carers and families.

  • If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child please talk to any teacher or you can speak directly to a member of the school’s safeguarding team.
