Safeguarding is paramount at Longshaw.  The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with our ULT Safeguarding and Child Protection policy). 

The school will always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. 

The ULT Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy  is available in the Policies section of this website, along with our e-Safety Policy. 


Should you have any concerns, the Designated Safeguarding Leads at Longshaw are:
