Acting quickly can make all the difference.

If you think a child might be suffering neglect or abuse, it can be difficult to know what to do. But your action is vital in making sure that child gets the help they need.  

To contact the school, call 01825 723377 and ask to speak with one of our Designated  Safeguarding Leads.

If you are concerned about a child in East Sussex call the SPOA (Single Point Of Advice) on 01323 464222.

Trusted Adults

Each year, we ask all of our children to select a trusted adult from both home and school whom they feel comfortable to talk to about any concerns. Each class has a list of trusted adults so our staff know who to direct the children to if they have any worries.

At Newick, we encourage our children to talk to their trusted adult.

We want to make sure that all children here feel safe and secure both emotionally and physically.

What is a trusted adult?

A trusted adult is someone that you have a good relationship with. It is someone who you think has your best interests in mind. You have a right to choose your trusted adult at school and at home.

How can a trusted adult help you?

Your trusted adult is there for you to talk to and support you.

  • They can talk to you about any concerns or worries that you have.
  • They could support you to talk to other people about your concerns or worries.
