Ashford Hill Safeguarding Policy Statement

Safeguarding determines the actions that we take to keep children safe and protect them from harm in all aspects of their school life.  As a school we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our pupils. 

The actions that we take to prevent harm; to promote wellbeing; to create safe environments; to educate on rights, respect and responsibilities; to respond to specific issues and vulnerabilities, all form part of the safeguarding responsibilities of our school.


A child is in immediate danger. What should I do?

If a child is in immediate danger, do not hesitate to call 999 and report this to the police.


Are you concerned about the safety or welfare of a child?

You don't need to know everything about the child before contacting children's services. If you are concerned about the welfare of a child, it is important that you talk to someone about this.

Contact children's services on 0300 555 1384


Are you concerned about someone working with children?

If you are concerned about the conduct of a member of staff, either in a paid or voluntary capacity, contact the Local Area Designated Officer (LADO).
