Keeping our scholars safe is really important to us at Brook Mead Academy. If you feel unsafe, frightened, or anxious you can talk to any member of staff that you trust. Alternatively, in non-urgent situations, you can email us at [email protected] and a member of our safeguarding team will discreetly come and talk to you when you are next in school.
Remember, if you are ever in need of urgent help or support, always call 999.
At Brook Mead Academy, Mrs Aylmer-Teago is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), but remember, you can talk to any member of staff if you feel unsafe, worried or frightened.
Also, look out for our “Where can I get help at Brook Mead Academy” posters, which have lots of information about how and where to get help if you need it.
