​We need to be safe rather than sorry. Reporting something you ​might think is minor, could turn out to help authorities/teachers piece together other incidents that have occurred.

Children will often need support to get help. By reporting an incident, you could be helping the child receive the help they need.

The earlier a child gets help, the more chance they have to heal from the abuse.

If you are not sure on what action you need to take, write down exactly what happened and then contact Chaz, our Safeguarding Lead. Chaz can help you with the next steps you need to take.
