Meet our Safeguarding Team

Safeguarding is about keeping children safe by protecting them from harm, supporting their development and making sure they grow up in a safe environment. At Southlands School, keeping children safe is our main priority. If you are concerned that a child may be suffering harm or neglect, ask to speak to our designated members of staff.
