We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support children, families and staff at school.

If you have any serious concerns about your child or any other pupil at Furness Academy please do not hesitate to contact ANY member of staff, who will know who to contact, or indeed direct you to for the most appropriate advice and help.
Alternatively, if it is an emergency situation you can contact the police on 999, or you can contact the Cumbria Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) on 0333 2401727
CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind.

You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.
If you are experiencing online bullying or something else online has worried you please speak to an adult you trust, or you can talk to Childline at any time on 0800 1111 or at www.childline.org.uk.
