Child Protection and Safeguarding Children

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mark Jones
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Jason Pearn, Jackie Yates, Simeon Kelly, Gail Collins, Aishling McCarthy and Sharron Humphrey

Heath Farm School has Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures, policy documents and a training programme that incorporates Government and Policy Legislation. Staff are given a copy of the Child Protection Procedures. Staff receive annual training from an outside consultant. Parents/carers, social workers, placing authorities and other significant people are offered a copy of the Child Protection policy.

Heath Farm provides policy guidance, which sets out clear guidelines and expectations in the school with regards to appropriate relationships between all staff and the children. At Heath Farm we provide a very caring and professional setting in which the children will be given full emotional support without it being detrimental to their safety and well-being. All staff are aware of their responsibilities for Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people.

Heath Farm has a duty of care and therefore a responsibility to pass on any child protection and safeguarding concerns to the relevant children’s social care services.
