The safety and well-being of your children is of paramount importance to us as a school. Nower Hill is committed to ensuring the safeguarding and welfare of all children in its care; all in the school community see this as our responsibility.
As a large school, we have a number of designated teachers for safeguarding; please feel free to contact any one of them should you have any concerns about a child.

With the ever evolving world of technology, E-Safety is a key aspect of school life and is embedded across the curriculum. Our students are taught how to behave responsibly and safely whilst online during dedicated lessons throughout the year in Computing, Citizenship and tutor time, with cross curricular references in a range of other subjects.
As a school, we believe it is our responsibility to work alongside our parents and carers to educate, support and update them on key E-safety matters. During the year we run E-safety evenings for parents and carers, provide frequent updates on new technologies coming onto the market, as well as supporting families in a non-judgmental way should they have any concerns about their child’s welfare online.
Should you have any concerns or queries related to on-line safety, then please don’t hesitate to contact our E-safety Co-ordinator, Ben Ford. We would also recommend you to Parentinfo, a rich resource for parents and carers that might just help you to keep one step ahead of them!
