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.
If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of any child in our school, the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is:
Miss L Walker
In her absence you can speak to another member of our trained staff.
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mr C Parkinson and Mrs J Haigh
Members of the public can make anonymous referrals to Social Care Direct. They will deal with your concerns and can offer advice and support on what to do. The telephone number is 0345 8503 503, this is a free and confidential phone line, open 24 hours a day.

Extremism and Radicalisation
Here at Willow Green Academy we are taking this extremely seriously and all staff have received training to aid them identify the signs of potential radicalisation.
As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child and so we have made some information available which you can find below.
Please read the leaflet below for further information for you as parents.
