Our aim is to educate our pupils around how to keep safe both in and out of school and this is done by liaising with all staff and sharing information when we feel they may be in danger in school and talking to key agencies in Sefton such as social services, youth services, health and the police to ensure the right support is in place when it is needed. We do this because we really care about our student’s and our community’s welfare and we want our young people to be the best that they can be. History and experience tells us you can only do this if they are safe and happy.
Stanley High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children. All adults visiting or working on site at Stanley have a part to play in ensuring we keep our children and each other safe.
The team meets regularly and discusses and takes action to safeguard the most vulnerable children in school. The team members are key support staff throughout school who work closely with all year groups to ensure they are safe both in and out of school.

- Mrs Fraser-Orr

In order to protect children at Stanley High we will:
- Create an atmosphere where all children feel safe, valued and listened to
- Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse in all forms
- Act quickly and effectively when concerns around the welfare of our children are raised
All adults working with our children will know that:
- They have a duty of care to safeguard all children whilst on site at Stanley High School
- Disclosures of abuse can happen at any time and to anyone in school
- They should immediately report any concerns around the welfare of a child
- Their role is not to investigate any concerns raised
If you become worried about a child or by something you see or hear whilst on your visit to our school, this information must be shared verbally and quickly, with a safeguarding team member.
