Who to contact if you have a concern about a child:
If you have a safeguarding concern about a child, you can contact any member of staff and they will refer the concern to our safeguarding team. If you have a general worry or question about your child and their well-being, please speak to your child's class teacher in the first instance.
For some children and families, home isn't a safe place.
If you are concerned about the safety or welfare of a child, please contact Kingston and Richmond's SPA (Single Point of Access) on 020 8547 5008 from 8am to 5.15pm Monday to Friday where you can share your concern and gain advice and information.
If you need to speak to someone urgently after hours or at the weekend, call the 'Out of Hours' team on 020 8770 5000.
If you think a child is in immediate danger, you should call 999.
