At Hunnyhill Primary we take the safety and wellbeing of the children in our school very seriously and we expect all staff, volunteers, governors and parents to do the same
We have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which is available on this website, a paper copy is available by request
Other policies which affect the wellbeing of children are:
Attendance; Positive Behaviour; Anti-Bullying; Computer and Internet Use (E-safety) and our Child Welfare Policy which contains guidance on administration of medicines, off-site visits and procedures for missing or non-collected children
We follow the Safer Recruitment Policy and the Department of Education guidance:
‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’
We follow GDPR and confidentiality policies
We have a Health & Safety Policy for the practical protection of children and staff and regular walkrounds to inspect the site are conducted by the Site Manager
All staff receive Safeguarding and Child Protection (CP) training and an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance appropriate to their position in school.
In line with the 'Safer Recruitment' guidance, all staff and governors, including volunteers who have access to children, in our school have been carefully selected and screened and all have had DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks. Should allegations be made against members of staff we will follow Local Authority guidance in dealing with them. This guidance ensures that the safety of the child is paramount.
