Scissett Middle School is committed to safeguarding & promoting the welfare of all its pupils and staff. As a school, we always listen to what pupils and staff tell us, and where necessary, act upon the information to ensure that our children and staff are free from harm.
We inform pupils of whom they might talk to both, in and out of school and all children are actively encourage to speak to an adult about any concerns they may have. All teaching and non teaching staff receive on-going safeguarding training in according with the school’s safeguarding policy.
We are committed to working with all stakeholders, including parents and carers, openly and honestly. However, on the rare occasion where a pupil may be at risk of significant harm, consultation may be sought with Social Services in the first instance.
Mrs Senior is the Designated Safeguarding Lead in school and is supported by a dedicated team of Safeguarding officers.
