Alderwood takes very seriously its responsibility for keeping all its pupils safe. Staff, volunteers and visitors are all made keenly aware of their legal responsibilities to put the welfare and safety of children at the forefront of all they do. The Assistant Headteacher - SEN is the school’s Safeguarding Officer and coordinates all aspects of this work. The Home/School Link Worker is the Alternate Safeguarding Officer. Our school is one where pupils feel secure and are encouraged to talk freely if they are worried or concerned about something in school or out of school, safe in the knowledge that they will be listened to and that appropriate action will be pursued vigorously.
