Child Protection and Safeguarding

Additional Student Support
We have designed the form below so students can let us know of any concerns they may have. This can include incidents that involve you or that you are aware of and may include:
- Inappropriate behaviour or language
- Child-on-child abuse
We would always advise that students should speak directly to a member of staff but we understand that some students may feel uncomfortable doing this and so this form is another option that can be used.
To allow us to offer support it is important that we know who is making the referral and so this form will record your email address.
If it is an emergency and someone is at immediate risk please contact 999.
Keeping Children Safe
Keeping children safe on the internet and social media can feel like a very challenging task. The National Society for the Protection of Children from Cruelty (NSPCC) has an excellent website with clear, practical and helpful advice. Please click on the link below to access this site.
There is also useful advice on E-Safety and how to ensure your child uses privacy settings correctly for online platforms.
If you have specific concerns about a child's safety, you can call Brent Family Front Door on 020 8937 4300. You can also email them at -
Alternatively you can speak to your child's Year Team Leader or a member of the school's Child Protection Team (contact details above).
