Oakfield Lodge staff are committed to the safety and safeguarding of all students.

In a recent survey 100% of parents said that they felt their child was safe at Oakfield Lodge.

We work hard to ensure that student welfare is our top priority and have a safeguarding team in place to support our students and their families.

We work closely with our partner agencies to make sure that the right support is coordinated to reach a positive outcome for our students and families.

If you have any concerns about your child please do not hesitate to contact a member of the safeguarding team at the school.

Our safeguarding policy can be located on the main policy page of the website. If you require a hard copy please contact school reception.

Pupils are considerate of each other’s needs. They say that bullying is very rare and that discriminatory and prejudicial language is never heard. Pupils told inspectors with a refreshing simplicity that ‘we just accept people for who they are.’



The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good.
