Staff at The Avenue all use the CPOMS electronic recording system to record safeguarding concerns.
All staff and Governors have read the most up to date Keeping Children Safe in Education document (2023). We also encourage parents/carers to read the document.
The designated people for safeguarding at The Avenue are:
- Mr James Hunter – Head of School

Additional members of the Safeguarding Team:
- Mrs Lucy Owens – Teacher
These members of staff all have the Level 3 Designated Person qualification.
Please report any concerns you may have.
