On this page you will find information and links relating to all aspects of safeguarding at Simpson's Lane Academy.

The welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our academy. We will always try to share any concerns we have with parents. However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents. The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart.

If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of any child in our school, the Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss Mayers. In her absence, you should contact, Mr Colley, Deputy Safeguarding Lead, or Mrs Silburn, Learning Mentor. They can be contacted through the school office.

The academy has a duty to inform parents that there is a prohibition on reporting or publishing details (including on social media) that could identify anyone who is subject to an allegation.

You may have seen that the Government have launched a website aimed at parents, teachers and school leaders to give practical advice on protecting young people from extremism and radicalisation. The website can be found at
