Emma Robinson is the DSL Back Up.  Their office is situated within the Neighbourhood centre (what used to be the Children’s Centre.) Rachel and Emma are school employees now and they are our Outreach/ Safeguarding Team. The safeguarding of children is a high priority of the school. Members of staff are trained to be vigilant in this area. Relevant governors have been trained with regard to ‘safer recruitment’ of staff. 



We are available for all your support needs.  We help families with behaviour, finances,  routines, mental health, and disabilities.  If you feel you require some support or would just like a quick chat please pop in to school or call us on 01257239950.
