Safeguarding

Keeping our children safe

At Hennock Primary School we strongly recognise the need for vigilant awareness of safeguarding issues. All staff have received appropriate training and induction so that they understand their roles and responsibilities and are confident about carrying them out. Staff, pupils, parents and governors feel secure that they can raise any issues or concerns about the safety or welfare of children and know that they will be listened to and taken seriously. This is achieved by maintaining an ethos of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. At our school, we are not afraid to challenge each other to keep our children safe.

We all have a safeguarding responsibility and have a duty to refer any safeguarding issues to external agencies that need to be involved.

Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility.  We work with a wide range of agencies to support our pupils safety and welfare, ensuring that they do not come to any harm. If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child at our school please see the contact details below:
