The Joseph Rowntree School

Student Support

We are committed to working together to safeguard all students. The safeguarding of our students is our number one concern and central to everything that we do as a school. 

This page is designed to ensure that you have information and guidance to keep you as safe as possible and have access to the support you need.


How to reach out for support

If you are concerned about your safety or wellbeing, or the safety and wellbeing of another young person, you can access support through specialist pastoral staff at school. Our aim is to ensure that all necessary support is available to our students and families. To request support please click on the link below and fill in the form. A member of support staff will then get in contact to help you. Please note, you will need to log in via your school Google account to use the form.

In an emergency

If you are outside of school and concerned that you or another child or young person is at immediate risk of harm, you should seek immediate help, in an emergency ring 999.

You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response.
