Highfield Infants' School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their family first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Ann Golding (Head Teacher), Nicola Williamson (Deputy Head Teacher) and Zoe Frankis (Deputy Head Teacher)
Prevent is one of the four elements of ‘CONTEST’ the government's counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to ‘prevent’ people becoming involved with extremist views.
The Prevent Strategy:
The school takes the Prevent duty very seriously and works to support all our families. Further information can be found across a range of our policies and in particular in the Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
You can read more about our Prevent Strategy in the documents above.
