Staff and Governors at Forest Glade work hard to safeguard the children in our care. We encourage the children to be safe and happy and promote this through our curriculum.
We are aware that many children are the victims of different kinds of abuse and neglect and that they can be subjected to social factors that have a negative impact upon their lives – including domestic violence, substance misuse, bullying, mental health and radicalisation. We also acknowledge that safeguarding incidents could happen anywhere and staff should be alert to possible concerns arising.
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs G Gregory
