Safeguarding

Keeping children safe is our number one priority.  To that end, Limehurst has six members of staff who are trained as Designated Safeguarding Leads.  They are:

If you wish to discuss or report a concern about your own child or another Limehurst student, please contact one of the people listed above at the school.  Alternatively, you can call the Children’s Duty team on 0116 305 0005.

For advice on a number of issues, including Bullying and Cyber-Bullying, Child Sexual Exploitation, FGM, Domestic Abuse, Grooming, Online Safety, Sexting and Self-Harm, the NSPCC website is excellent.

Online Safety

Below are some links to helpsheets for parents on keeping your children safe online.

Preventing Radicalisation

It is possible for any child to be exposed to extremist influences. Children from very different backgrounds have been radicalised, even those from stable homes, who were doing well at school. However, it’s important to keep things in perspective and remember that for most young people, the risk that they will become involved with extremist groups is very low.

If you have any concerns, please visit the Educate Against Hate website which contains clear and sensible advice for parents.  Leicester and Leicestershire’s PREVENT team have trained all staff at Limehurst in spotting the signs of radicalisation and extremism.  For more information on their work, see below.
