At Sebright we are passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment.
We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. We have robust policies in place for ensuring the the wellbeing of our children. These policies underpin our practice and values shared by every single member of staff in our school.

Talking Mental Health Animation
Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people. this includes depression, anxiety and conduct disorder, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives.
70% of children and young people who experience a mental health problem have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
Daubeney (part of our federation) was fortunate enough to work with the Anna Freud National Centre and created a beautiful, thoughtful animation.
