Safeguarding at Heswall Primary School

Safeguarding at Heswall Primary

At Heswall Primary School, we are fully committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our children.  It is their right to be safe in school and our duty to ensure this. 

Safeguarding is managed in a number of ways.  This includes ensuring good behaviour, safety on the school site, anti-bullying, E-safety, pupil voice and child protection policies.  As part of safeguarding work, we work in partnership with colleagues from other agencies.  This includes colleagues from school nursing and other medical professionals, social care, community police, children's centres, therapists, paediatricians and other agencies.

Safeguarding concerns can also be reported directly to the Care and Duty Team (CADT) at Wirral Social Care.  Their telephone number is: 0151 606 2008.

We have a fully trained safeguarding team at Heswall that work with families and the other professionals to keep children safe.  We absolutely insist that safeguarding is the duty of everybody here.
