Tor Bridge High is committed to its statutory duty to safeguard all children and young people in the school. Safeguarding underpins everything that we do and it includes attendance to school, the relationships and behaviour of staff and students, anti-bullying, equality and diversity, child protection and supporting disabled students and those with other vulnerabilities. It also means maintaining high standards of health and safety, safe recruitment and selection, site security, online safety, school trips, first aid and GDPR.

We recognise that abuse and harassment happen everywhere, therefore, we are a listening school and we take concerns raised by young people and/or their parent/carer very seriously.
