What do to if you are concerned about a child's safety

Anyone who has a concern for the safety or well being of a child has a duty to act by sharing that information.


If you feel that there is an immediate risk of significant harm to a child or that a child is in danger, call the Police straight away. 


If your concerns do not fall into the above category, you should share them with a Designated Safeguarding Officer at school.  The Designated Safeguarding Officers at St Michael's are Miss Crofts, Mr Kilbane, Mrs West, Miss Knight and Mrs Juna.  If they are unavailable, please speak to any other member of staff, making it clear that you have a safeguarding concern.  All school staff have safeguarding training and will ensure that a Designated Safeguarding Officer contacts you. Alternatively, you can email:


Alternatively, concerns can be reported directly to Reading's Single Point of Access via telephone, 0118 9373641, email at or via
