Safeguarding at Trinity 2023/24

Welcome to Trinity Catholic High School Safeguarding page my name is Sean Reed the Designated Safeguarding lead at Trinity. My role is to be the first port of call for any safeguarding needs that students, staff or parents may have or need advice regarding. It often means signposting to services, referring to agencies and most importantly ensuring the child is safe while in school. Please feel free to contact me on [email protected] with any enquiry or for any advice regarding your child.

Safeguarding legislation and government guidance say that safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome

Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, anti-bullying work and a range of universal services in school including education welfare officers, counsellors and ELSA’s.

The school’s Safeguarding Team consists of:
