It is our legal duty to act on any concerns.
Reporting Safeguarding concerns to school
Guy Williams - Safeguarding Governor
I am the Safeguarding Governor at Fox Hill and have been a co-opted Governor since 2018; I am also Chair of the Pay Committee. Outside of Fox Hill, I am the Deputy Head Pastoral and Designated Safeguarding Lead at Reading Blue Coat School, an independent senior school just outside Reading. I have previously worked at Wellington College as Head of Sixth Form and Head of Philosophy and Religion. I have also worked in examining, curriculum design, and educational publishing. When I’m not teaching or being a Governor, I like to spend time with my family, cook, and practice karate.

The Prevent Duty aims to prevent young people from being radicalised by, for example, far right extremists or religious extremists.
In school we have a duty to care for the children and take note of any child who is at risk of radicalisation, regardless of their background. We also have to take steps to help prevent children being exposed to extremist ideas. Our overriding concern is that children feel safe and also express respect and tolerance towards all cultures and religions.
