Our modern, two form entry school benefits from extensive grounds and a fantastic learning environment. The curriculum is engaging and always evolving.

We are looking to appoint someone:
- Who has significant knowledge of safeguarding policies, procedures and practices
- Who is a confident communicator who can make referrals to, and liaise with our partners in the Police, Social Work team and Local Authority in order to effectively manage cases
- Who can attend and contribute to strategy discussions and case conferences where appropriate.
- Who will provide high quality advice and guidance to the school leaders and staff
- Who enjoys a challenge and will continue to build a culture of safeguarding at the school
- Who has a genuine passion for working with and making a real difference to young children’s lives
So if you are an advocate for keeping children safe and are committed to working co-operatively to secure the best outcomes for our children, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
