Safeguarding

At Todmorden High School we place the highest possible priority on safeguarding our students, making sure they are protected from harm and given the information they need to protect themselves. We work closely with parents and the local community to fulfil this role, and we take this responsibility very seriously.

To see a copy of our Safeguarding policy, please see the policies section of our website.

We remind students frequently that our main priority is to ensure that they feel safe and happy in school.  We have a number of posters throughout school in all departments and communal spaces, which highlight the adults in school who are responsible for safeguarding and where they can be found.

If you have any concerns in relation to safeguarding then please contact one of the following members of staff:

Mrs Rawlinson – Designated Safeguarding Lead e.rawlinson@todhigh.co.uk
Mrs Pickles – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead s.pickles@todhigh.co.uk

Miss Cooper – DSL Trained (g.cooper@todhigh.co.uk)

Students can speak directly with the staff named above, or any adult in school, if they have any worries or concerns. We work with a number of agencies who can offer additional support to our students and this can be arranged through school. Please contact Mrs Pickles to arrange.

Bullying

Todmorden High School has a zero tolerance policy on bullying. If you are directly affected by bullying, or are aware of someone who is, you must report this in one of the following ways:

Speak to Mrs Pickles or to another member of staff in school.
Email: nobullying@todhigh.co.uk.
