Our Culture of Safeguarding

Child Safeguarding is central to school life at Pate’s Grammar School. We pride ourselves on having a “visible” and “open” culture of safeguarding, where all students are supported to be the best versions of themselves.

All our staff are reminded of the very clear and high expectations placed upon them as professionals working with young people.

All members of staff are recognisable by their identity badge. Any visitors to the school must sign in and wear a Visitor’s Badge.

Meet the Safeguarding Team

We are aware that students and parents sometimes wish to raise safeguarding concerns. If you wish to discuss a confidential safeguarding concern, please email the safeguarding team direct at dsl@patesgs.org

Please remember that you can report abuse direct to the police and the Safeguarding Team at the Local Authority. Information about Gloucestershire reporting mechanisms can be found here:Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Partnership | Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children’s Partnership
