Information for Parents/Carers & Pupils
Reporting Safeguarding concerns
Across C.I.T Academies, we pride ourselves on the support and care that we give our pupils and alongside your child’s Teacher and Headteacher, we have a team of Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL's), whom you can contact if you have any safeguarding concerns.
If you have any general concerns about your child, please contact their Teacher in the first instance, however if you have significant safeguarding concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the school’s safeguarding team:
Lincolnshire County Council - https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/safeguarding/report-concern
If you have urgent concerns for a child, or suspect that a child has been abused in any way, you can also report a safeguarding concern to Lincolnshire County Council Children’s Safeguarding by calling 01522 782111 (if you are a member of the public).
If you require an urgent response outside of working hours, please call 01522 782333. In an emergency, call 999.
