Whatever your issue, there is always someone to speak to here at Kirkburton Middle School. If you have concerns about your own welfare, or the welfare of a friend or other, never be afraid to speak to someone.

If you need to speak to someone, go to any member of staff or a Befriender, they will always be willing to help. Ask if you can speak to them about something you are concerned about, or say it is a safeguarding issue.

You can, of course, speak to any adult in school but Mrs Senior and the safeguarding team will have to be involved at some point if serious allegations are made.

Alternatively you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page to contact Mrs Senior or Mr MacIntyre directly by selecting 'Safeguarding' in the first box.
