The Link School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support pupils and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education. If a pupil or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.

Please visit our Safeguarding Statement page to read our Child Protection, Adult Protection and Safeguarding Policy and our Safeguarding and Wellbeing Offer.

The Link School – Safeguarding Statement

If anyone is worried that a pupil is being abused or there are safeguarding issues, the senior designated member of staff should be contacted. Alternatively you can contact the LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer) at the Local Authority.

As part of safeguarding the pupils of The Link School we will ensure that no political view is promoted. If political views are discussed as part of the school curriculum we will ensure this is a balanced discussion.
