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:

Mrs Emily Rawlinson
Deputy Headteacher/DSL
Mr Andrew Nalborczyk
Assistant Headteacher/Deputy DSL
Mrs Sharon Pickles
Safeguarding Manager
Mr Jason George
Safeguarding and Pastoral Support Officer
Miss Gemma Cooper
SENCO/Assistant Headteacher/Deputy DSL
Miss Gill Shirt
Headteacher/Deputy DSL

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.
