Safeguarding is woven into our curriculum through PSHCE lessons, Computing and IT, assemblies and through special events and external visitors.  We are proud to have achieved the Doncaster Anti-Bullying GOLD Charter Mark. 

There are three members of staff who are  trained in Safeguarding to meet the Standards expected by the Doncaster Safeguarding Children's Partnership (DSCP) for Level 3 Safeguarding Training:
