At the Swallowtail Federation of Church Schools we work together to make everyone safe. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. If you have a concern about a child, report it without delay. This includes vulnerability to radicalisation as well as situations of abuse which may involve staff members.

The following members of staff are designated safeguarding leads and can be found at each of the school sites as indicated.  Our safeguarding governor is Mrs Angie Johnson.

Mrs Butcher
DSL for Catfield, Hickling and Sutton


Miss Amis

Mrs Holmes
DSL (Sutton)


Miss Blake
DSL (Hickling)

If you are concerned, there is a risk of immediate serious harm to a child a referral should be made to children’s social care immediately. Anybody can make a referral. If the child’s situation does not appear to be improving the staff member with concerns should press for re- consideration. Concerns should always lead to help for the child at some point.
