Safeguarding Statement

Hillcroft Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

This means that we have a Child Protection and Safeguarding policy and Procedures in place which can be viewed on our website. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Sometimes, we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about student welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about students are discussed with his or her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the student’s welfare.

Our safeguarding lead is:

Miss Louise Summers

Our deputy safeguarding leads are:

 Mrs Debbie Pearson, Mrs Carly Gear, Miss Jennie Dennis, Mrs Tara Copard and Miss Laura Skingley.

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern and any observations or conversations that you may have heard and report this to one of the safeguarding leads as soon as possible that day. Do NOT conduct your own investigation.

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which would suggest that he or she is unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to one of the safeguarding leads in confidence or the Chair of Governors,Mr Liam McGivern, if the concern relates to the Headteacher, who will consider what action to take.
