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.

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

Ms Wells – Designated Safeguarding Lead m.wells@todhigh.co.uk
Mrs Pickles – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead s.pickles@todhigh.co.uk

Miss Cooper – SENCO/DSL Trained (g.cooper@todhigh.co.uk)
Mrs Rawlinson- DSL Trained (e.rawlinson@todhigh.co.uk)
Miss Shirt- DSL Trained (g.shirt@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.

What is a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)?

The designated safeguarding lead is the person appointed to take lead responsibility for child protection issues in school. All schools must have a designated safeguarding lead in place to deal with child protection concerns.

Special Educational Needs

We are committed to ensuring that all our students make exceptional rates of progress regardless of their background or ability.  We have an experienced and dedicated SEN team who work closely with all staff in school and parents to ensure that children with special educational needs or disabilities reach their potential.

Please see the policies section of our website to view our SEN policy and Local Offer.

Contact

If you have any questions or concerns about SEN then please do not hesitate to contact either Gemma Cooper or Gill Shirt.
