Carshalton High School for Girls  is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our students in school and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We believe that students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment, which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse, where staff are vigilant for signs of any student in distress and are confident about applying the processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.  We have a Safeguarding Policy and robust procedures in place.  The Safeguarding Policy can be viewed under the 'Featured Content' section on this page, and also under the Our School>Policies section.  All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and Governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm - safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment - and that we all feel safe in our environment.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a student's welfare.  Where possible, we will ensure that concerns about our students are discussed with their parents first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the student's welfare.

If your child is ever concerned about safety or wellbeing or about a friend, they should talk to one of the school's Safeguarding Team.

The team consists of Miss Holmes – who is the Designated Safeguarding Lead,   Mrs Newman (Years 7 and 8) and Mrs Warren (Years 9 -11) in Student Support and Miss Holmes (Year Leader) are Deputy Designated Safeguarding leads,

You can contact these staff members on the main school number: 020 8647 8294.  Please state that you are ringing about a safeguarding matter.
