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. 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. . The school aims to provide a balanced but flexible curriculum so that every child receives skills needed in our fast changing world. ICT plays an integral part to the children’s learning.
Each class has an Interactive White Board. We take e-safety very seriously within school and make the children aware of internet safety. The computers have blocks on them to prevent pupils accessing unsuitable materials. South Hiendley Primary School has signed up to the ‘Wakefield’s Young People’s Safeguarding Charter’.
Safeguarding is a term which is broader than ‘child protection’ and relates to the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Pupils' safety is paramount at South Hiendley Primary School.
