Safeguarding – Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils.

In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to significant harm, ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow SSCP (Sunderland Safeguarding Children Partnership) procedures. For advice, guidance or clarification concerning the school uniform or any other issue, please contact the Head of Year or Associate Head of Year for your child’s year group on 0191 917 2300.

Our pastoral system is designed to ensure your child’s time at Monkwearmouth is both happy and productive. Upon entry each pupil is allocated to a tutor group in which we anticipate they will remain throughout their time at Monkwearmouth. The tutor is an important daily presence in your child’s school life, someone who becomes known to them very quickly and who together with teaching staff will focus on ensuring your child feels safe and secure. This enables them to learn effectively and fulfil their personal and academic potential.
