Plantsbrook School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students. The health, safety and well-being of every student is our paramount concern. We ensure continuous development and improvement of robust Safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff. We have a safeguarding policy and procedures in place; a copy of the policy can be accessed by clicking the link at the top of the page.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a student’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the student’s welfare. Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Ms N Orchard (Assistant Headteacher), Miss L Proctor (Assistant Headteacher), Mrs C Ash (Assistant Headteacher), Mrs C Drury (Assistant Headteacher), Mr D Waple (Achievement Coordinator) and Mrs D Bolton (Pastoral Support). Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns about any of our students.
