At Parbold Douglas C of E Academy, our first priority is the safety and welfare of our pupils. We have clear systems and processes in school to ensure all members of our school community understand their duties and responsibilities in safeguarding our children. Our staff are committed to ensuring our children are safe, happy and nurtured at all times.
Sometimes we need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concern's about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our children are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that this would be contrary to their welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Lawson.
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Coxhead.
If you are concerned about the safety or welfare of a child, please act without delay. You can contact our Designated Safeguarding Leads or:
