Keeping Everyone Safe

If you are concerned about the safety or well-being of a child or you find that you and your family need support you are always welcome to make contact with a member of school staff. This page will also help you to access support if you have worries and want to talk to someone. Seeking help is a positive thing to do for yourself, your own family or someone you are worried about.

If you have concerns about a child's welfare, or feel that they may be being abused or neglected, please call the Integrated Access and Referral Team (iART) or the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) for help and advice. Alternatively you can call the police.

iART: 0300 123 7047

The Cheshire West Safeguarding Children Partnership website provides safeguarding information

Our school is part of 'Operation Encompass'. This means that following a domestic abuse incident, the Police make contact with the school and communicate relevant information to nominated school staff, to ensure that the school are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included. 

Mental Health Helpline: 0800 145 6485. This phone line is now the first port of call for mental health help – it is operated by people in your local area who will know how best to support you. 

MyMind is a local website offering guidance and support for children and young people, parents and professionals.
