Hasland Infant & Nursery school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, volunteers, visitors and contractors to share this commitment. Safeguarding is EVERYONE'S responsibility and as an employee or when working in or visiting our school you should play a full part in keeping yourself and the children safe.
Our school has robust policies and procedures in place and expects anyone visiting or working on our premises to have an understanding of their role and responsibilities in safeguarding and expectations around conduct and behaviour.
Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be the subject of ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff and helpers will follow County Child Protection procedures and inform Social Care (formerly Social Services) of their concern.
