At Reigate School the safety and wellbeing of our children is our highest priority.

Together with providing exceptional pastoral care, we are proactive in ensuring all children have the information and knowledge to keep themselves safe at school, online and they know how to communicate any concerns they have personally or about others.

All staff and children are aware of which members of staff make up the Safeguarding team and know the procedures in place to raise any concerns.

  • The Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection and Safeguarding and the Single Point of Access for Prevent is Mrs S. Jethwa
  • The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr M. Alexander (Headteacher)
