Safeguarding

Welcome to the Helen Allison School safeguarding page. It contains useful information about safeguarding and links to further information.

Whether your child is a day or residential student, our school is a place where their wellbeing is of primary importance. We have extremely robust safeguarding procedures and practices in place to support this. We firmly believe it is the right of every child to be healthy, safe and happy, and to achieve and make a positive contribution.

Keeping up-to-date with what your children are doing online can seem daunting. Technology is constantly advancing and sometimes parents feel their children know more about the internet than they do. Whatever their age, we can help you to find out more about what your children might be doing online and give you some simple, practical and easy advice on the steps you can take as a parent to keep them as safe as possible.

Any safeguarding concerns should be reported to our Designated Safeguarding Lead. You can contact them by calling the main school number (01474 814878).
