Minehead Middle School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and we expect all members of staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our aim is to establish an environment where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk, and are listened to when they have a worry or concern. Parents and carers may also contact us where they have concerns about the welfare or safety of their child. The Designated Senior Teachers work closely with the pastoral team to support students.
If you are a parent and would like some advice on how to keep your child safe online then use the following links to access some useful guides:
