If a member of staff has a child protection concern, the Head teacher is informed. If a pupil makes a disclosure about any form of abuse, the Head Teacher will inform Social Care, which the school is legally obliged to do. The Head Teacher is required by the Local Authority to report any suspected cases of child abuse. In such cases, we usually refer all information to Social Care, who will contact the Police Child Protection Team where necessary. The school will always aim to work closely with parents and carers.
