Grafham Grange School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support students and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2020. If a student or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.
COVID-19 SAFEGUARDING UPDATE: please see the Covid-19 annex to our safeguarding policy for details of how we continue to safeguard students through the coronavirus pandemic.
Please see our policy for further details.
The safety of our students is our number one priority. As we all know, the risks in modern society are varied and constantly changing and we cannot remove these, so we all need to help educate children in ways to keep themselves safe.
If anyone is worried that a student is being abused or there are safeguarding issues, the senior designated member of staff should be contacted either by telephone on 01483 892214 or by using the below email addresses.
