Parent Information


Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility

We keep the child in focus at all times. We never judge, but we keep an open mind, knowing that ‘it could happen here’.
We take our responsibilities regarding welfare concerns seriously and encourage our students to talk openly about any worries they may have.

CAMHS is an online health platform that has a wealth of self-help information for children, young people, parents/carers and professionals about mental health and the services offered.
