Safeguarding Overview

Anthony Gell School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Safeguarding Measures

Cause for Concern

All staff at Anthony Gell School are asked to report any causes for concern to the Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer .


All lateness and absences are recorded by the pastoral team. Reasons will be sought for all absence or lateness. Attendance is monitored through these systems and referrals to the Designated Child Protection Officer can be made. Parents will always be informed of concerns around attendance at the earliest point. If attendance concerns continue the school will refer to the Education Welfare Officer.
