Safeguarding at the Schools of Woolton Hill
The Schools of Woolton Hill are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we have a safeguarding culture and have Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies and procedures in place which are robust in approach and expectation. All staff are trained annually on Safeguarding and we follow this up throughout the year. We follow our robust Federation procedures. Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy which is accessible under policies on this website or a hard copy on request. Our policy and practice is in line with all national statutory requirements.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
If you are concerned...
If you are concerned about a childs welfare then:
contact the school office so that they can immediately find a DSL for you to talk with
Alternatively you can call Hampshire Children’s Services on 0300 5551384
or the Police
If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff please ask to speak to a DSL in confidence, who will refer the matter to the Executive Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Executive Headteacher) and procedures will be followed.
