Keeping our pupils safe - ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, every day’. 


At CFS, our first and foremost priority is to keep our pupils safe and healthy. All members of staff share the responsibility for this and are guided by the Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mr Lee Hardwick) and two Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (Mrs Cathryn Halton and Mrs Hannah Tulley). As Principal, Mrs Louise New takes overall responsibility for the safety and welfare of all pupils and staff in the School. 

Under the new OFSTED framework safeguarding is a key indicator of what constitutes a good school.  Keeping our pupils safe means: 

  • Prioritising the health and safety of all our pupils 

  • Making sure that the adults who work here have undergone safety and security checks 

  • Protecting our pupils from deliberate harm 

  • Being an anti-bullying school 

  • Being proactive against racist and other prejudiced behaviour 

  • Being proactive against attempts to indoctrinate our pupils into forms of extreme ideology through radicalisation, extremism or terrorism

  • Protecting our pupils from harassment and discrimination 

  • Ensuring a positive approach to behaviour management 

  • Meeting the needs of pupils with medical conditions 

  • Providing first aid 

  • Protecting our pupils from drug and substance abuse 

  • Ensuring pupils enjoy safe educational visits 

  • Caring for pupils' personal needs 

  • Keeping our pupils safe when using the Internet and making sure they are aware of cyber bullying and e-safety 

  • Making sure our school site is secure and safe 

  • Ensuring pupils know who to go to in school if they have a problem 

  • Being a "listening school" 

  • Maintaining an attitude of "it could happen here" 

The safety, health and wellbeing of all our pupils is our number one priority – if you are concerned about a child please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead or a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.
