Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy

“Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment.”

Nelson Mandela

The Royal Latin School is committed to ensuring the safety of its whole school community.  Every member of the community (Staff, Students, Parents, Visitors) must share this commitment and play their own part in it.

If you are concerned about the safety, wellbeing or behaviour of one of our school community, then contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads via their email below or via our designated safeguarding email address Contact can also be made by calling the school Reception.

The safeguarding team at the school work closely with outside agencies and will refer concerns to them where appropriate. However, if you are concerned about the immediate welfare of a child it is always appropriate to make a report yourself.

  • If you believe a child is in immediate danger of harm or violence, including Female Genital Mutilation, contact the police.
  • If you are concerned about a child’s home situation, then contact the safeguarding team at the relevant County Council via the following links:
