Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbour.
At St Anne's we have a child-centred approach to everything we do, this means we will at all times consider what is in the best interest of all the children we teach. We recognise that safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with our students, their families and their carers has a role to play in safeguarding them. This means recognising concerning behaviour, sharing information quickly with the relevant people in an appropriate way and taking prompt action where necessary.
It is important to us that we educate our students in how to safeguard themselves and others around them. This is delivered explicitly through regular assemblies and the PHSE curriculum as well as implicitly through their subject lessons. Safeguarding should not be compartmentalised; it is something which permeates everything we do here at St Anne’s.

How to Report a Safeguarding Concern
There are a number of ways that a student, parent or carer can report any concerns they may have about the welfare of a child. The most important thing is that someone is told so that we can help. All staff in school receive regular safeguarding training, including form tutors and administrative staff. However there are several dedicated staff who are Level 3 trained who can be contact via the main school telephone number. These are listed below

On the front page of our website, we have a link to our ‘Tell Us’ feature. This is a confidential service for all students and parents to report any concerns or ideas they may have for St Annes. It is checked each day and information is passed on to the relevant member of staff who will aim to resolve the issue and report back where appropriate to the individual who made the concern. This Service can also be accessed by using the link below
