At Woodlands Meed we aim to support the safety and wellbeing of all our learners at all times.

We take our safeguarding duties seriously, and all our staff receive safeguarding training, annual updates, and are committed to ensuring our students are safe and thriving.

We have a safeguarding team of 10 staff who work on supporting student welfare and on helping families in times of difficulty. Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Chris Carter. Our Deputy DSL is Gillian Barton. Chris works mainly at the school site, and Gillian mainly at College.

We work closely with all our families to make sure that our pupils can have the best outcomes possible. We believe in having open and honest dialogue with parents and carers to keep our young people safe, happy and healthy, and a good partnership between school and home is the best way to do this.

If you ever have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of a child, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team.
