Safeguarding Testimonials

At The Heights Blackburn, we take Safeguarding extremely seriously – it is really important to us that our key safeguarding partners and stakeholders find value in the effectiveness of what we do. Below are testimonials from some of the individuals who we have worked with to ensure effective safeguarding at The Heights Blackburn for all of our pupils and their families.

“The Heights Blackburn take a very holistic approach when representing and managing safeguarding in their school, not only do they look at ways to support, engage and motivate young people, they also look at ways at how this same mantra can be used with the young person’s family as they are able to recognise that every young person are not on their own in their world and that the people around them have an influence upon them. I am extremely grateful for the support offered by The Heights.”

“The safeguarding team at The Heights are amazing. My daughter has struggled with school for a very long time due to additional needs and the safeguarding team have made it possible for her to actually get an education, they show compassion, understanding, integrity, empowerment and respect at all times and in what can sometimes be very stressful situations. What makes them so amazing is that they care.. I know my daughter really appreciates the help and support she gets from them and as a parent I will forever be grateful to them for the support they have not only given to my daughter but to us as a family, thank you doesn’t seem enough.”

“Having worked with the Heights through a professional capacity, I feel they offer highly knowledgeable staff who truly go above and beyond for the wellbeing of their students. They’re able to adapt their approach to suit the individual needs of their students and take a multiagency approach with other professionals to ensure the young person is receiving not only the right level of support, but the appropriate support. The safeguarding staff all work within a timely manner and are very responsive to situations.”
