Safeguarding in education

Safeguarding children in education is a key area of focus. By education, this refers to any child who is in nursery, infant, junior, primary or secondary schools or colleges.

At Telford & Wrekin Council, the School Performance and Development Team work alongside schools to ensure that they are both supported and compliant with all aspects of safeguarding. If you have any queries or would like further advice, please contact Scott Thomas-White who is the Education Safeguarding Co-ordinator either by telephone on 01952 380867 or via email at
