Yateley School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have both Safeguarding and Child Protection policies and procedures in place. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents and carers are welcome to read the policies which are available here.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about students are discussed with their parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
Yateley School has a team of trained safeguarding leaders. The Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) at our school are Rupert Keeble, Paul German, Andrew Conway and Lynne Goldwater.
It is everyone’s responsibility to safeguard, protect and promote the welfare and safety of our young people.
If you see or hear something that concerns you regarding the safety and wellbeing of a young person, then please report it to the school either via the Head of House team of the dedicated DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead) team immediately as per their contact details in the below table.

Child on Child Abuse
Sadly we do see incidents where young people are making poor choices towards each other. We must remember that things like ‘it’s just banter’, ‘I was only having a laugh’ is simply not acceptable and must be reported.
