Heronshaw School


We all have a role to play in protecting children and young people from child abuse and neglect.

Many people do not act because they’re worried about being wrong.

You don’t have to be absolutely certain; if you’re concerned a child is being abused or their safety is at risk, speak to someone.


Heronshaw School has a team of Designtated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). The Senior DSL is Mr Jamie Ainscow. The school's Safeguarding Core Group is made up of Mr Jamie Ainscow, Miss Maddie Boothroyd and Mrs Penny Meehan.

If you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child then please share those concerns with a member of the team.
