Child Protection and Safeguarding

Garratt Park School takes Child Protection and Safeguarding very seriously.

Schools have a duty to report to Social Services when they have concerns about a child’s wellbeing outside school. Often, these concerns are resolved quickly without further action being necessary. However, we believe that it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Garratt Park School will always work closely with parents where concerns are raised, and parents will in most cases be informed when a referral has been made to Social services.
