At Hatchside School, we will place the utmost importance on the Safeguarding of our pupils and therefore we have rigorous and robust safeguarding and child protection procedures, including the Prevent Duty and staff awareness of FGM, and work closely with many agencies to ensure the safety and well-being of all our pupils, their families and staff.
All staff and Governors will hold enhanced safeguarding (DBS) checks as part of our rigorous safer recruitment procedures.
All staff will be trained in safeguarding and prevent. We will provide regular updates to keep staff up to date with current and localised issues, including contextual issues related to Redbridge and the surrounding areas.
The Head of School and Deputy Head will be trained to Designated Safeguarding Lead level.
