Safeguarding

The Governors and the Headmaster fully recognise the School’s responsibilities for safeguarding and child protection, in particular the role we can fulfil as part of a wider system of safeguarding, with a child’s welfare and best interests as our paramount concern.

We strongly believe that Shrewsbury House School should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child and we are prepared to intervene at an early stage to prevent a concern from escalating. We work closely with parents to ensure that each boy receives the care he needs at each stage of his development.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Jane McKeown, (jmckeown@shstrust.net) and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding is Mrs Jan Hand (jhand@shstrust.net).  They are contactable via email or telephone (020 8399 3066). Outside school hours and during school holidays, any Safeguarding concerns should be reported to the relevant local authority for the child’s home address. Further, helpful details are below:
