Highwood Primary Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed here.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there may be concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Matt Bevan (Head of Inclusion). Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Matt Hickey (Headteacher). The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Dr Lois Beaver.
