Safeguarding at Willow Green

At Willow Green Academy, the welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our school.

We will always try to share any concerns we have with parents.  However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents. 

The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart. 

Our safeguarding policies can be found in the ‘Statutory Information’ section of our website.

The Safeguarding Team

If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of any child in our school, you can speak to one of our safeguarding team:

  • Miss L Walker (Designated Safeguarding Lead)
  • Mr C Parkinson (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead)

  • Mrs V Iveson (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead)

At Willow Green Academy, the safety of the children is our first priority. If you have any concerns do not hesitate to contact a member of the Safeguarding Team.
