Safeguarding Support, Advice and Contacts for Families 24/7
During term time we hope that our families at Milton Road feel they can approach school with any problem which we can work through together confidentially, or at the very least we should be able to signpost you to agencies which can offer further support.
Our Designated Staff (DPs) for child protection are: Mrs Nina Burton (Acting Headteacher and Lead DP) , Mrs Alison Hall (Acting Deputy Head and Inclusion Manger) and Mrs Fiona Brown-Roche (HLTA).
All DPs can be reached on the school number 01223 712333 or by e-mail through the school office: email@example.com
Support out of school
The school holidays are, of course, for many children and families a high point of the year, but there may be times when the ups and downs of family life get too much and support is needed. Also, extended periods away from the structure and routine of school life can put some families in crisis.
Below are some links / phone numbers for families to contact should there be a safeguarding concern about a child or family member at anytime, including during the evenings, weekends and holidays.
If a child / adult is in immediate danger or child left alone, you should contact the police or call an Ambulance (Call 999). The police operator will need to take your name, address and details of what has happened. This will take time, but it is important they get all of the information from you so that they can send the appropriate resources to you.
