Safeguarding

We have a duty to ensure children are safe. In school we do this by making sure that everyone who comes into the building is suitable for working with children. We also work hard to minimise risk in the grounds and building.

If we have concerns about the safety of any children we follow the school’s safeguarding policy, which can be accessed via this website. It outlines how we deal with any issues when we think children may not be safe, including how we would act if we felt children were not safe at home.

All concerns are recorded and handed to a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). At Hyrstmount Junior School, this is Mr Leach or Mrs Wharton.

The DSL would then decide how to deal with the concern. This would usually involve speaking to parents or people from other agencies such as health or social care.

If we feel a child is at risk of harm, we would usually discuss this with parents. We then have a duty of care to report our concerns to the Referral and Response Service at social care. They can be contacted on 01484 456848.

There are posters around school that give more details about our safeguarding procedures. If you have any questions or concerns about safeguarding please speak to one of the designated senior people below.
