Safeguarding

At Wicklewood Primary School and Nursery the safety and well-being of all our children is paramount. It is the responsibility of every member of the school community to ensure that they are aware of safeguarding and the requirements to follow procedures at all times.

If you have a concern about any child please report this to one of our Designated Safeguarding Lead Professionals.
