Safeguarding

All of us have a responsibility for Child Protection. This means:

  • protecting children from abuse
  • promoting the welfare of children
  • preventing children from being harmed

Students, parents/carers and staff must feel able to raise concerns.

Students, parents/carers and staff must recognise that they have a duty to raise concerns.

If you have a concern regarding a child’s safety you must refer it immediately.

Basic eSafety advice

Parents/carers and students should make use of the HPS eSafety iTunesU courses (links below):

Do not

Don’t share any personal information or your contact number online.

Don’t meet people that you have only spoken to online.
