South Hiendley Primary School is committed to safeguarding and ensuring that all pupils are safe from harm.
All the staff and volunteers in our school have undergone DBS checks and receive regular training to ensure they can promote children’s safety.
Mr Steven Walker, Headteacher, is the designated teacher for Safeguarding, supported by Mrs Helen Reed, Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Melanie Reed, Assistant Headteacher, and Mrs Heidi Barraclough, Learning Mentor.
Everyone in our school community takes an active role in safeguarding children’s well being and ensuring they remain safe both inside and outside school. We have clear procedures and policies in place to cover all aspects of safeguarding, including online safety. All pupils are taught age appropriate online safety modules each year. We thread safeguarding education throughout our yearly planner. Each week, we have a portion of our assembly dedicated to "staying safe". Staff are trained in all aspects of safeguarding in annual face to face training. They update themselves regularly through our "take five" programme, focussing on all the key areas for Keeping Children Safe in Education, and Working Together to Safeguard Children.
All staff follow the Staff Code of Conduct Policy Sept 2019 V2.
All staff are clear on the Whistleblowing Code of Practice Sept 2019
