Safeguarding and E-Safety

The safety and wellbeing of our students is a key priority for everyone at Friern Barnet School and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children.

We have a legal duty to protect children from maltreatment; prevent impairment of children’s health or development; ensure that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and take action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Our staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children and we work with social care, the police, health services and other services to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

If you have a concern for a child's safety or welfare, please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead Mr J Robinson (j.robinson@friern.barnet.sch.uk) or the Deputy Safeguarding Lead Mrs T Josif (t.josif@friern.barnet.sch.uk). Alternatively, you can contact the school at 0208 368 2777 and ask to speak to a member of the safeguarding team.
