Safeguarding your Child at Caterham

Caterham High School recognises that all staff and Governors have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm and that the welfare of our students is our paramount concern.

In cases where a child is suspected of being a victim of physical or emotional harm or neglect it is the responsibility of the school Designated Safeguarding Leads to take appropriate action. This may mean monitoring the behaviour of a student or making a referral to an outside agency, such as the Child Protection Agency.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr É Casey, Assistant Headteacher.

We have five Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads - these are Ms H Davis (Deputy Headteacher), Ms V Cassettari (Lead for inclusion), Ms S Plume (Assistant Headteacher), Ms S Cassidy (Pastoral Manager) and Mr R Parker (SENCO) Please contact our Safeguarding team if you have any enquiries.
