At English Martyrs, the safety of all children is paramount.

Ensuring the children are safe, happy and learning is the core of what we are about.

Keeping children safe includes online, from peer to peer abuse/bullying and issues within school to concerns they may raise outside school.

The safeguarding governor’s committee meets termly to review Safeguarding policies, procedures and receive reports from the DSL team.
