Challney High School for Girls is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all students. This School is committed to providing a child safe environment, where our students are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives.

Our aim is that students will enjoy their time in this school. We want to work in partnership with you to help your daughter achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution. We have a dedicated Safeguarding team comprising of four staff members that students can speak to about any concerns they have about themselves or someone else.
