At Holmgate Primary School and Nursery, we are strongly committed to safeguarding. All adults working within the school have a responsibility to keep pupils safe and protect them from abuse, and other safeguarding concerns.
All our pupils have a right to be safe and to be treated with respect and dignity. We work efficiently with outside agencies to ensure that this is the case. The safeguarding culture of the school is exercised through the development of respectful, caring and professional relationships between adults and pupils.
Our staff and volunteers undergo regular safeguarding training to ensure that they can identify safeguarding issues and report them immediately.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for the school will deal with any safeguarding concerns you have as a matter of urgency. Please do not hesitate to make contact - a delay in reporting could lead to a child being harmed.
