If a child is at risk of immediate harm, please call the police on 999 immediately.

In the King’s Worcester Foundation of schools, we recognise the wide-ranging challenges that families can face in bringing up children and keeping them safe. As a Foundation, we are fully committed to ensuring that we go the extra mile in ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all the pupils in our care. We have a Foundation Director of Safeguarding and Compliance whose role it is to ensure consistent excellence in the provision of safeguarding across all three schools. This is a broad remit, from the safe recruitment of staff and volunteers to a flexible and responsive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education programme.

There may be times when you or your children need extra help and support. To that end, we have signposted you to some useful websites and services at the bottom of this page.  If a conversation would be more helpful, please do not hesitate to come and talk to us. Key staff with a responsibility for safeguarding are also listed below but it is important to emphasise that all adults working in our schools have a responsibility to be vigilant in recognising issues early and reporting concerns; the culture in the Foundation is very much one of professional curiosity, where the needs of children come first.
