Safeguarding

The school is committed to ensuring that your child is safe whilst with us. This means that not only have we made every attempt to make both sites secure but take a firm line on bullying: our implementation of policies in both areas has been inspected and praised by the Local Authority.

All staff have been trained to level 1 in Child Protection and we have two highly qualified Child Protection Officers, one for each site:-

North Lodge : Mrs M Wilson (mwilson@parkviewlearning.net)

Church Chare : Mrs A Moore (amoore@parkviewlearning.net)

We make stringent safeguarding checks upon the suitability of all applicants when recruiting. Within the PSHE programme, there are modules on keeping safe and we focus upon teaching students e-safety. In our latest stakeholder surveys, safety was identified as a strength of the school by both students and their parents/carers.
