Statement to Parents
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.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Miss Walker. In her absence please speak to a member of the Child Protection team.
Our Designated Child Protection team includes
Mr Parkinson – Head of Academy
Ms Rhodes – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (Attendance officer / Pastoral team)
Mrs Iveson– Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (Pastoral team)
