Safeguarding

Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play ensuring children and young people are safe from abuse, neglect exploitation and harm. Our school is committed to safeguarding children and aims to create a culture of vigilance. All staff will always make sure that decisions made are in the best interests of the child. Our school is a community and all those directly connected, staff members, governors, parents, families, and pupils, have an essential role to play in making it safe and secure for all.

If you are concerned about a child, you can speak to a designated safeguarding leader. They are available in person on the school gates or via appointment, over the phone (0208 672 3957) or email (admin@hillbrook.wandsworth.sch.uk FAO a DSL)
