At Hillside Primary School we believe that:
- Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility.
- Schools play a key role in the prevention of abuse.
- All children have the right to be protected from harm.
- Children need support which matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse.
We have a dedicated Pastoral Care Team, who are trained to deal with safeguarding and behaviour issues. They can be contacted by ringing 01484 226834. Please speak to someone if you have any concerns regarding a child. A copy of our Safeguarding Policy (including Covid19 Annex) can be viewed under 'Policies' section of this website.
All Hillside Primary School staff receive regular training in how to deal with Evacuation, Invacuation and Lockdown.
