Feeling Safe

The safety and wellbeing of our students is our number one priority here at Newbury School.  We want our students to view school as their home away from home, a safe place to learn and play. We have designated safeguarding officers and protection leads to ensure our students feel safe. This is achieved through handling all referrals sensitively, professionally and in ways that support  the needs of the individual student.  By creating a caring, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social,   physical and moral development of all our students, we aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security. Our leads can be contacted if you have any questions or concerns relating to either child protection or safeguarding.
