Keeping Safe and Well at home

Whilst the school is closed, our duty and responsibility to safeguard our pupils remains. Our regular check ins with families needing a bit of extra help and support will continue throughout the period of school closure. Please do not feel offended if a member of school staff calls to check in with you. If you have any safeguarding concerns while the school is closed for your child or for any other pupil from the school, please contact us on:

For more information, please visit our Safeguarding page. 

 

This page outlines some key information and resources to help all families stay safe and look after their wellbeing during times of school closure.

‘Many residents will be following the local and national advice around household isolation and social distancing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This advice is in place to limit the spread of the virus and keep as many people as safe and well as possible.

We know that there are vulnerable people in our communities who will be more concerned than others about the prospect of staying at home for a number of reasons, including those who have been the victims of domestic abuse such as violence or coercive and controlling behaviour.

While all public services are adapting to new ways of working during this pandemic, our message to anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse is clear: You are not alone and you don’t have to suffer in silence – we will still be here for you, no matter what.

Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police, Local Authorities and providers of domestic abuse support across Merseyside will continue working together to maintain essential services and contacts for anyone affected by domestic abuse during the weeks and months to come.

Support will still be available by telephone, text message or online services.

Who to contact:

If you, your child or anyone in the family are at immediate risk of harm, you should contact the police urgently, CALL 999

If you are a Liverpool resident and are experiencing domestic abuse or believe someone you know is please contact support services via:
