Cranleigh prioritises the safeguarding and wellbeing of every single pupil. The teenage years can bring a range of challenges to young people and our aim is to help every pupil to navigate their adolescence safely, with the support of a caring community.
Our staff is highly trained in safeguarding young people and we have a dedicated team of designated safeguarding leads that are known to each child. Our Head of Safeguarding, Mrs Sue Fairbrother, is in regular contact with local organisations and partnerships to help manage risks outside the school. She keeps us up to date with new trends, both physical and virtual, and our parents and pupils have access to a hub of professional resources that help families through the teenage years.
Through our PSHE programme we aim to nurture resilience and self-understanding in pupils and we regularly extend speaker-led PSHE sessions to parents, allowing them to have the same language to initiate conversations with their child.
Pupil feedback is always important and we run termly surveys for pupils to ensure we are meeting their needs, as well as regularly reviewing our safeguarding structure.
