Our Behaviour for Learning Code: RESPECT, CHALLENGE, REFLECTION, RESILIENCE, ENCOURAGEMENT and CITIZENSHIP because... At Hurdsfield: only our best will do!
The safety of our children at Hurdsfield is our number one priority!
Hurdsfield Primary School and Nursery 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 Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the policies section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent agenda to counter radicalism and extremism as well as British Values.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr James Cash (Headteacher)
Our Deputy DSL is Mrs Victoria Wales (Assistant Headteacher)
