Safeguarding Pupils

Home / Parents / Safeguarding Pupils

At Dean Trust Rose Bridge, we make pupil safety and well-being a priority and we support pupils in numerous ways. Each year group has a designated Pupil Support Manager, as well as a Personal Development Curriculum, weekly assemblies and access to a specialised councillor if needed (to name but a few). In addition to this, we also liaise with a number of external agencies to enable us to provide effective support to both pupils and their families.

We have produced a number of YouTube videos to support pupils’ self-regulation and to equip them with more coping strategies. Head over to our YouTube Channel to see them! Please navigate the areas below for specific information and guidance regarding various areas of support.

Parental Support

You know your child best.  If you have concerns about their safety, mental health and general well-being, you can:

  • Find space to talk and listen without judging, reassuring them  that you will support them.
  • Make use of the available services. Online or telephone support can be readily accessed.
  • Contact your doctor. They can offer you support or refer you to relevant agencies.
  • If you have serious concerns for the safety of your child, take them to A&E.
