What you can do
Parents and carers play a role in safeguarding children in their community. If you have any concerns, no matter how small, you should report them to someone who you trust will listen. The school is required to have a designated child protection officer for this purpose. Parents and children should speak to the safeguarding officer if they have any concerns about a child or staff member.
If you think a child or young person may be in immediate danger, call 999.
Otherwise, please contact SCAS (Staffordshire Childrens Advice and Support) immediately on 0300 111 8007.
