Our Safeguarding Team

We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children and adults feel respected and valued. We maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned and promote a culture of openness where children and adults are able to talk and are listened to.

Our Maritime Trust Safeguarding Lead is Matthew Bulpitt

 If you have any concerns about the safety of a child, please report your concern to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads.
