Heltwate fully recognises the responsibility it has under Section 157/175 of the Education Act 2002 to have arrangements about safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children

Through their day to day contact with pupils and direct work with families, staff at the school have a crucial role to play in noticing indicators of possible abuse or neglect, referring them to the appropriate agency, normally children’s social services and working in partnership to address those concerns

The Safeguarding policy sets out how the school’s governing body discharges its statutory responsibilities relating to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children who are pupils at the school
