Hillside Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as "Designated Safeguarding leads” in school in compliance with the guidance.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is the Headteacher Mr Davies. The deputies are the Deputy Headteacher, Ms. O'Connor and the Raising Standards Lead, Mrs Mason  They are supported by a team of other teachers and members of the support staff.

If you have any serious concerns about your child or any other pupil at Hillside Junior School please do not hesitate to contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead who knows who to contact for the best advice and help and is experienced in using the appropriate degree of confidentiality.
