Safeguarding

The Boswells School strives to ensure that all students are supported to feel safe and secure both on their way to and from school as well as during their curriculum lessons and recreational time.

The Pastoral Team works with a number of external agencies to ensure specialist support services are available to young people and their parents / guardians. The team is very experienced and a number of staff work solely to ensure the wellbeing of the young people in The Boswells School. In addition to the information available on the links below, the school has a Twitter Page which regularly shares up to date advice on a range of welfare issues. Please follow us on @BoswellsPD

Let Us Know

The school has a dedicated email address for parents and students to email any concerns they have in relation to harmful sexual behaviours or other safeguarding matters. The emails will be responded to within 48 hours by a member of the school’s Safeguarding and Pastoral Team. The email account does not replace the methods of communication and support we currently have in place but is designed to provide an additional avenue for raising concerns.

Please also note that this is not a 24-hour helpline and will only be monitored during school operating hours. In the event of an emergency an appropriate adult or the police should be contacted. The support groups listed below may also be of use.

The email address is letusknow@boswells-school.com
