How to raise a safeguarding concern
If you think you or someone you know is being abused, or neglected you should tell someone you trust.
This could be a friend, a teacher, a family member, a social worker, a doctor or healthcare professional, a police officer or someone else that you trust. Ask them to help you report it.
How can we help?
If you see or know of, a worrying situation, please do not ignore it. Concerns can be raised to the school Headteacher or through its compliant procedures. Parents or members of the school community can also report concerns to Wigan Council Click Here to report a concern to Wigan Council
