Safeguarding at The Kingsmead School

Schools are charged with maintaining a safe, supportive environment which protects the rights and needs of children at all times. School staff have regular contact with children and young people, and a responsibility to help to identify signs of children in need of additional support or protection accordingly. Together, these responsibilities are called safeguarding. All staff at The Kingsmead School work very closely together to ensure we meet all expectations. These professionals in school are all here to help:
