We take our responsibilities to protect our children from all forms of abuse very seriously. Halfpenny Lane has a specialist safeguarding team in place who our pupils know they can talk to if anything’s worrying them. If you’d like to speak to a member of the team, please call the office to make an appointment.

We have several detailed policies to keep our children safe, and we also recommend some other organisations who may be able to help with any concerns – the links are below:
