At St Laurence School we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.

To see our policy on Safeguarding, see the policies page on this website. The policies that specifically relate to Safeguarding are:

Policy on Child Protection

Policy on E-safety

E-Safety

May we take this opportunity to remind students about keeping safe online and the importance of not having strangers as friends on social media. It also is important that students do not share/receive indecent images as we have a duty to report this to the police and children’s services.

If any parent or student is concerned about any aspect of a student’s wellbeing, then please do contact one of the safeguarding team, or feel free to speak to any member of staff in the first instance.

The school also has access to a visiting school nurse or counsellors. An appointment can be made to see a school counsellor through Here to Help (H2H) service or Student Reception.

There are a variety of resources online to support parents/carers and additional information can be accessed via the School’s website by clicking on the Information and E-Safety link or by typing this link into the webbrowser:
