Safeguarding at Ursuline

At the Ursuline High School, the wellbeing and the safety of young people in our care is paramount. We recognize our duty to ensure arrangements are in place for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

As per of our safeguarding practice, we share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a young person’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the young person’s welfare. We have an extensive network of agencies and staff that can offer support to any young person and their family. We can also offer advice to signpost families in need of help.

If you are worried about a student at our school during term time, please contact the school (020 8255 2688) and ask to speak to a member of the safeguarding team, or directly email to directly email via
