Safeguarding at New Heights School



Safeguarding children – the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm – is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.


The safety and welfare of ALL our pupils and staff is paramount. We provide a safe education environment where we respect and value the children and expect the same of them. We welcome enquiries about how we meet our safeguarding and protection responsibilities.


We are trained to be alert to signs of abuse and neglect and have procedures in place to ensure our staff and young people are protected.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have concerns about any child in our care.
