We take our responsibilities to protect our children from all forms of abuse very seriously. The Rookeries has a specialist safeguarding team in place who our pupils know that they can talk to if anything is worrying them. If you would like to speak to a member of the team, please call the School Office to make an appointment.

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss Nicki Ellwand, Head of School
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mr David Dunn, Assistant Headteacher and Miss Melissa Kasparek, SENCo
Nominated Safeguarding and Vulnerable Children SPRB Member: Mr Mike Farrell


We have several detailed policies to keep our children safe. We also recommend some other organisations who may be able to help with any concerns – the links are below:
