Safeguarding

At OMG, we prioritise the safety and well-being of our students. We're dedicated to creating a secure environment where every student feels heard and supported.

We want everyone in our school community to feel safe and respected and be able to talk about any concerns they may have.

At OMG, we recognise that safeguarding young people is everyone’s responsibility. We want all children and adults to feel confident about reporting any safeguarding concern – and to know that they will be listened to.
