However, if you feel that a child is in immediate danger you can call the Suffolk Safeguarding team directly at Customer First on: 0808 8004005.
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership, and Unity Schools Partnership has adopted a Safeguarding Policy in line with this for the safety of all.
Our process and protocols for safeguarding children ensure that we meet the expectations outlined by the Department for Education in their ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ statutory guidance.
