This page is currently under review.
Who can you talk to if you are worried about a child or young adult?
If you ever feel concerned about a safeguarding issue no matter how small it may be it is important that you share it. It is everyone's responsibility to look after children and young adults. Never feel that something is too small to say or think that 'it can't happen here'. We all need to be vigilant at all times and to communicate well to each other.
If you have child protection/safeguarding concerns about a child please see devonsafeguardingchildren.org for information of what to do.
If you want to discuss a concern with the school Amanda Bellamy is the Teacher in Charge at Park School and is the school's designated child protection officer. She is always available to talk to if you have any safeguarding concerns.(Telephone 01803 864588 firstname.lastname@example.org).

The school holds a whistle blowing policy if you feel that these people can not help you.
You can also contact MASH(Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub) for advice and to report a concern.
