Child Protection

At Hedon Primary School, we recognise that your child is our responsibility and concern. We want to work in partnership with you, and discuss with you, any concerns we may have or that you may have.

It is a priority to inform and involve you at every stage in your child’s time at the school.

Since the first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.

The ER Safeguarding Children Board has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all. This policy is available in the policies section of the school website.

If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the Head teacher, your child’s class teacher or Janet Pallister who is the Governor with responsibility for Child Protection.
