Safeguarding, Welfare & Pastoral Care
Do you know what to do if you have a concern about a pupil's safety or welfare?
Firstly- you should never feel guilty about this. Pupil safety and well-being is our absolute top priority, above all else. We WANT to hear from you and we WANT to help.
There are members of staff in our school whose specific responsibility it is to handle concerns of this nature; they are:
Mrs Hanlon (P2 & Senior Management): Designated Teacher for Child Protection (DT)
Miss Finlay (P7 & VP): Deputy Designated Teacher for Child Protection (DDT)
If you have a concern of any type please do not investigate, simply mention it to either member of staff above and they will know what to do.
If you aren't comfortable with that, you may speak with Mr Currie (Principal) or any other member of staff who will help you.
