Hill View’s Worry Box

 

If you and your children have any worries and concerns during this current time  we would like you to share with us by clicking on our worry box below

 

Safeguarding

Hill View School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects of staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.

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

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Buckland (Head) Mr Winthorpe (Deputy Head) Ms Smith and Mrs Knapper ( Assistant Heads)

 

We will keep this page up to date with new information we think may be helpful for you at home.

The current Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is with our Governors and will be available soon.
