At the Heathland School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff, teaching and non-teaching (including temporary and supply staff), governors and volunteers to share this commitment.
The Heathland School takes seriously its responsibility under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 and existing documentation including ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (September 2021) and Working Together to Safeguard Children (June 2018) relating to Child Protection to safeguard and promote the welfare of children; and to work together with other agencies to ensure there are adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess and support those students who are suffering harm. We will always act in the best interest of the child.
