Who is responsible for the safeguarding of children?
It is everybody’s responsibility to be vigilant and listen to students when they are worried about safeguarding issues.
Within LWF every member of staff receives safeguarding training and all staff are made aware of the designated safeguarding officers who are currently, Tonya Stokes (Head of School, St Bernard’s) and Michelle Hockham (Head of School, St Lawrence). In their absence the Tall team can be contacted, Sue Clinton, Martin Chatterton at St Lawrence, Helen Harkness at St Bernard’s, or Suzanne Hogg within Maples.
As a Federation we ensure:

Every student receives PSHE lessons where subjects are specifically targeted. We also endeavour to cover a range of topics throughout the curriculum such as:
We at LWF are committed to giving our students the tools and knowledge that is required to keep themselves and each other safe from harm.
