If you have any safeguarding concerns about a member of staff then please contact Paul Hooper, Head Teacher, or James Green, Chair of Governors. Our Safeguarding policy gives detailed information about how we make sure that we keep the children safe at school. This has been written with reference to the DfE guidance document ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’.

A young carer is someone who is under 18 years old and provides care for their parents or siblings who struggle to care for themselves because of an illness, disability or dependency.

The Carers Lewisham, Young Carers Service, partner with local agencies, schools and other specialist support services to identify and support young carers and their families from any background in the local community.
