Holwell Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website. We follow 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' carefully. All appointments including volunteers working at Holwell are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is: Mrs O'Flaherty - Safeguarding and Welfare Lead
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL) are: Miss French - Headteacher, Mrs Adams - Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Crellin - Associate Deputy Headteacher.
If you have a safeguarding concern please report your concern to a DSL via the office.
