Safeguarding at Spen Valley High school is everyone's responsibility. However, we have a team of staff to who specific safeguarding concerns should be reported.

|Mr R March||Deputy Safeguarding Lead|
|Ms H Clacy||Headteacher|
|Mrs S Jagger||Deputy Headteacher|
|Mr K Audsley||Assistant Headteacher|
If you need to report a safeguarding concern, please contact a member of our Safeguarding Team - click here.
All staff are trained on Safeguarding and understand the importance of safeguarding our students.
Safeguarding training consists of face to face training, online e-learning modules, a knowledge testing quiz and mandatory reading. All staff are required to read and understand the Statutory guidance for schools and colleges on safeguarding children.
As a school, we always follow the most up to date safeguarding guidance and update our policies accordingly.
Wellbeing & Support
As well as supporting our students we want to ensure we are supporting our families too. To avoid 'information overload' we have pulled together the contact details for support both in school, locally & nationally into an A to Z which can be found via the below link:
