At St Helen's, we provide a safe environment in which children can learn. Every member of staff has a responsibility to identify children who may be in need of extra help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm. All staff have a responsibility to take appropriate action and follow the schools safeguarding procedures.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Martin Jarvis. The Alternate Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Kate Hodgetts, Mrs Lena Gunby and Mrs Frankie Gibbons. The named Governor for safeguarding is Mrs Carol Pickering.
If you have any queries regarding the schools safeguarding procedures please speak to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads or consult the Safeguarding Policy.
Online Safety at Home
Online Safety is about staying safe on the internet. Internet enabled devices such as computers, tablets and smart phones offer lots of new opportunities, but also present new risks.
In school we proactively filter internet access to ensure that the children are not exposed to any inappropriate or adult material. If you are a customer of BT, Sky, TalkTalk or Virgin Media you can follow this guide to set-up parental controls on your internet access.
