The Linden Road Academy community shares a strong belief that every child must be protected from harm and have the best possible level of welfare. We agree we all have a shared responsibility in this.


Ofsted 2023 

"Leaders have strong, well-embedded systems to record safeguarding issues. They seek advice and support for vulnerable pupils from a range of external agencies. Staff are tenacious in their efforts to seek additional help for pupils when needed."


If you have any concerns at all regarding the welfare of any child there are a number of ways that you can report these.

1. Call into school and speak to a member of staff - Miss Dewar, Miss Pillar and Mr Greaves are the deisgnated members of staff but you can ask to speak to any member of staff.

2. Ring school on 0161 320 0002 and ask to speak to a member of staff.
