What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children refers to the process of protecting children from maltreatment, preventing the impairment of health or development, ensuring the that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Our pledge

We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our pocedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

If you have a concern for a child's safety

Should parents or members of the public have any safeguarding or welfare concerns about a student of Lymm High School they should contact the main reception as quickly as possible and ask to speak to a member with responsibility for child protection on 01925 755458.

Be vigilant and report all concerns regarding children or staff members, no matter how small; often this can help form part of the bigger picture of an incident or situation.
