Sources of Support

Are you finding something difficult? LILA*’s safeguarding and welfare team are here to listen and help. Fergus is our welfare/Safeguarding Lead. Simone, Beckie, Andy and Victoria are also named welfare/safeguarding staff, and all our teachers and other staff will be happy to support if you want to share anything privately.

Feel free to come and speak to any of us about something you’re having difficulty with. You can also contact us at enquiries@lilalovetolearn.com.
