It is very important to us that all children at St Mary & St Michael are safe and happy. As a school we take our responsibility for safeguarding very seriously.
The Child Protection Officer's role is to ensure all children are safe from harm and that the school carries out its safeguarding responsibilities. If a parent has any concern they should come and talk to Miss Willetts or Mr Mercer as soon as possible. Please be assured that your concern will be treated promptly, discreetly and in confidence.
