Safeguarding              

The person responsible for Safeguarding & Child Protection within our school is Mrs S Tickle.

Hollingworth Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and members of the wider school community to share this commitment.  For full details of our safeguarding arrangements please refer to the Safeguarding policy below.

Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy

Should you have any concerns relating to the safety and welfare of a child at the school you should immediately contact our designated person for safeguarding:- Mrs S Tickle.

Should you have any concerns in terms of Safeguarding relating to the behaviour of a member of staff, you should immediately contact the designated person as above.  If the allegation concerns the Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher, you should contact: Mrs K Johnson, Chair of Governors, via school who will arrange for her to call you as soon as possible.

Should you feel that your concerns have not been dealt with appropriately by the school/chair of governors, you should contact the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO), which can be found on the following website http://www.tamesidesafeguardingchildren.org.uk/professionals/managementofallegations.aspx  

 

 

On 21st January 2019, Hollingworth Primary School is implementing a new project that will run jointly between schools and Greater Manchester Police.  This project is called Operation Encompass.  It aims to support children who are affected by domestic violence by ensuring that their school is informed.  This allows the school to support the children.  If you have any other questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

All parents/carers should have received this letter, giving more details about Operation Encompass and providing a link to their website http://www.operationencompass.org/

 

The Difference Between Safeguarding and Child Protection

In practice, Safeguarding is the policies and practices that schools and Governing Bodies employ to keep children safe and promote their well-being. This means everything from security of the buildings, to the safe recruitment of staff and everything in between.  This diagram sets out what Safeguarding means in schools:

Child Protection is one aspect of Safeguarding.  Child Protection is a term used to describe the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.

Recently there have been a number of concerns in relation to children’s safety whilst on line in particular an app called Momo.

In school we do a lot of work with your children about keeping themselves safe whilst on line and we hope by providing the attached information you will feel confident to talk to your children about their on line activity and to support them in keeping safe.
