Hardenhuish School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection. Safeguarding incidents could happen anywhere and staff should be alert to possible concerns being raised at Hardenhuish. The Governing body takes seriously its responsibility under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children; and to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering harm.
We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern. All staff believe that our school should provide a caring, positive safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.
Hardenhuish School’s designated Safeguarding Leads are:
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Assistant Headteacher: Sally Harris
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead : Deputy Headteacher: James Woollin
Child Protection Governor: Kirsty Clark
