Helpful Websites for Parents and Carers

Notre Dame ensures children learn in a safe, caring and enriching environment. Children are 

taught how to keep themselves safe, to develop positive and healthy relationships, how to

avoid situations where they might be at risk including by being exploited.


Notre Dame also has a statutory responsibility to share any concerns it might have about a

Child in need of protection with other agencies and in particular police, health and children’s

Services. Schools are not able to investigate concerns but have a legal duty to refer them. In

Most instances the school will be able to inform the parents/carer of its need to make a referral.

However, sometimes the school is advised by children’s services or police that the Parent/Carer

cannot be informed whilst they investigate the matter. We understand the anxiety Parents/carers

understandably feel when they are not told about any concerns from the outset. The school

follows legislation that aims to act in the interests of the child.


Notre Dame will always seek to work in partnership with parents and other agencies to ensure

the best possible outcomes for the child and family.
