Safeguarding Policy

Hollinswood Primary School & Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment. In addition all staff, governors and regular volunteers are expected to attend statutory training to keep up to date of all relevant safeguarding polices and procedures.

We have a Safeguarding Policy and procedure in place. All staff (including support and supply staff, regular volunteers and Governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents, carers, and pupils are welcome to read the policy which can be found on the website under the Polices section and from the school offices. Alternatively you can just click the link here.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a young person’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 pupils’ welfare.
