The Roche School is committed to safeguarding its pupils and expects all staff to demonstrate the same behaviour.

Safeguarding is defined by the Department of Education in the following way:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment and neglect
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care

All Roche School staff receive training to ensure they recognise any signs of maltreatment and know how to take appropriate steps if they have any such concerns. It is the responsibility of the school and its wider community to keep children safe from any kind of harm.

Parents with concerns about children are asked to contact the school with their concerns. Please contact the Head of Pastoral Care and Safeguarding, Mr Stephen Wormersley, on 0208 877 0823 or email him at
