At the Heart of the Forest Community Special School we consider keeping our pupils safe to be our highest priority. We make sure that we are up-to-date with child protection procedures and we work hard to provide our pupils with a safe environment in which to learn.

Our Head teacher, Stephanie Withington is our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and there are four Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Nicki Davis, Judith Leadbeater, Lizzie Spowart and Shelley Cambridge.

The Governor responsible for safeguarding is Pam Jones.
