Abuse (physical, sexual, emotional) or neglect can have a damaging effect on a child’s health, educational attainment and emotional well-being. Some changes in a child’s behaviour may not necessarily indicate that a child is suffering abuse or neglect. In some cases those changes may be symptoms of a hidden disability, undiagnosed medical condition or changes in medication.
If you become concerned about:
· Comments made by a child
· Marks or bruising on a child
· Changes in a child’s behaviour
· Changes in a child’s appearance
Please report these concerns to one of our Safeguarding Leads.
If you are concerned about safety of an activity or any aspect within school, please also report it to one of our Safeguarding Leads.
If you have concerns, please do NOT decide to do nothing or leave our school without telling anyone
