Safeguarding At Queens'

At Queens’ we recognise the contribution we make in partnership with other local agencies in safeguarding children. All staff and trustees have a full and active part to play in protecting our students from harm, and we work on the principle that the welfare of the children in our care is our primary concern.

If you wish to discuss a safeguarding or child protection issue with a member of our staff please call or email the Student Support Manager for the year group the child belongs to. You can also email or make an anonymous report via the SHARP system located at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, please phone 01923 224465 and ask to be directed to the relevant person.

Hertfordshire Children’s Social Care can also be contacted by anyone who wants to report concerns about a child or to request support. Their number is 0300 123 4043. You should call 999 if you’re in immediate danger or if a crime is being committed.
