At John Keble School we take our responsibilities for child protection seriously. All concerns are reported to the relevant staff and are dealt with in accordance with our school policy. Ms Hawker, Ms El-Habti and Mrs Allard are the designated Child Protection Officers. Any child protection concerns should be raised with them.
