Church Hill Infant School fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support them in school. Pupil welfare is of paramount importance, therefore safeguarding our pupils is the priority of Bradgate Education Partnership and Church Hill Infant School. This is reflected throughout Trust and school policies and is embedded into school life.
Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be found in the Policy section of the website alongside our Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policy too.
If you would like to discuss any concerns about your child, then please do contact us at school.
All staff in school have a responsibility but certain staff members are trained to lead on safeguarding.
Mrs Claire Elliott – Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs Heather Creighton – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
