Safeguarding Team

Meet the Safeguarding Team.

We all have a statutory duty to “Safeguard and Promote the Welfare of Children”

If you have any concerns about the health, safety and wellbeing of a child at this school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of staff as soon as possible.

Please do not worry that you are reporting small matters: we would rather you tell us things which turn out to be nothing rather than miss a worrying situation. Some issues such as a child’s appearance, hygiene and general behaviour can be shared with any teacher or member of support staff in school. 

If you think a matter is a very serious and may be related to a Safeguarding/Child Protection concern e.g. sexual, emotional abuse or neglect you must talk to the people below immediately.

If you are unable to contact them you can ask the school office staff to find them and ask them to speak to you straight away about an urgent matter.

Please be aware that during the weekend and school holiday periods the Safeguarding Team will not be able to respond to emails or telephone queries raised as the school is closed.

However, if you need any advice or support in the meantime there is a wealth of information available on the School’s Website and the Tapton Trust Website about resources and services that may be helpful until you are able to speak with someone.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child or young person during these times please contact the Sheffield Safeguarding Hub on 0114 2734855 (24-hour service). If you think a child or a young person is in immediate danger please call Police on 999 at any time.

If you are a child or young person and are worried or feel unsafe then you can get help from Childline, a free, private and confidential service where you can be you. You can chat online or on the phone, 0800 1111, 24 hours a day.
