Our school takes safeguarding seriously and we have 4 designated safeguarding leads in school: Mrs Towers, Mr Huck , Mrs Tracey and Miss Taylor
We also have a learning mentor in school who also assist in this role in school.
If you have concerns about safeguarding then staff can be contacted by making an appointment via the school email firstname.lastname@example.org or in person, at the School Office, or by telephone.
Alternatively, Lincolnshire County Council also provide a direct line for you to phone should you need some advice or have safeguarding a concern that needs reporting. The number is 01522 782111.
