Richard Challoner School


Richard Challoner School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people.

If you have a concern about a pupil or you receive information that leads you to be concerned that a pupil has been harmed, is at risk of harm or their welfare is being compromised, please contact

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a young person’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the young person’s welfare.

At Richard Challoner School we take the wellbeing and the safety of our pupils very seriously. We have an extensive network of agencies and staff that can offer support to any young person and their family. We can also offer advice to signpost families in need of help.

If you are concerned about a child in anyway or wish to raise a concern about poor or unsafe practice then please contact someone on the list below or the safeguarding email link above as soon as possible.
