Safeguarding

Reddish Vale High School aims to create and maintain a safe learning environment where all children and adults feel safe, secure and valued and know they will be listened to and taken seriously. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.

If you have any concerns regarding Safeguarding, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead or Safeguarding Manager.
