At Bolder, we are proud of the work that we are doing to keep our students safe and well, both inside school and out.
Our staff are vigilant in reporting any safeguarding concerns whenever they arise and any issues are dealt with by our safeguading officers.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Ms Swidenbank email@example.com

We recognise that sometimes families need support too and we work closely with Hounslow Early Help Hub and other agencies to stay up-to-date with services that might be able to help.

Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing
We have created a directory of apps that our students have found useful in supporting their mental health and emotional wellbeing:
We have also started a series of webinars called Living Bolder Lives, aimed at providing no-nonsense, succinct advice and guidance to parents/carers around problems that they might be experiencing at home. Our first session is around supporting children and young people who self-harm. Click here to watch the webinar on YouTube.
Students should call Childline on 0800 11 11 straight away if they are concerned about their mental health or think they are in trouble,
If parents or carers feel that they need some support, they can call Young Minds for free on 0808 802 5544. They are open 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Friday.
At Bolder, we provide advice and support, as well as signposting a wide range of resources, to help our students stay safe online.
This includes information shared during Assemblies, Personal Development sessions and Computer Science lessons.
