Heath Mount Primary Safeguarding Statement


At Heath Mount Primary we put the safeguarding and wellbeing of the children first and expect all visitors and volunteers to do the same.


In our school children are taught how to keep themselves safe, form positive relationships, and know who to speak to if they need help.


We work with our families and sometimes outside agencies to safeguard our pupils. Our staff have a duty of care to report any concerns, and always act in the best interests of the child.


For more information please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy in safeguarding polices.

Overall responsibility for Safeguarding within our school is Ms D Fance
