Safeguarding information for parents and carers

 

It is crucial that parents and carers are aware of the signs that a student may be suffering harm of some sort. If any of the signs below are observed they may indicate that there is a safeguarding issue:

  • displaying disruptive or anti-social behaviour
  • being bullied or bullying others
  • having poor attendance at school
  • being involved in, or at risk of, offending
  • having poor general health
  • having anxiety, depression or other mental health issues
  • misusing drugs or alcohol
  • having a particularly challenging relationship with parents or appearing to be unusually independent from their parents
  • experiencing difficulties at home, such as domestic abuse, parental substance abuse or parental mental health problems

If you notice any of these signs you should take action to support the young person. If you consider the situation to be an emergency always contact the police on 999.

If there is no risk of imminent harm you can speak with a member of the school safeguarding team. This can be done through contacting Mr Mullen, the school safeguarding lead by phone: 01992 717835, and/or email: safeguarding@st-ignatius.enfield.sch.uk

If you are unable to contact the school it is essential that you do not wait. In such a situation you should contact the Enfield Children’s Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 020 8378 5555.
