Safeguarding and Child Protection at Holly House School


Staff at Holly House School have a responsibility for the Pastoral Care, general welfare and safety of the children. We will endeavor to carry out this duty by providing a caring, supportive and safe environment, where each child is valued for his or her unique talents and abilities, and in which all our young people can learn and develop to their full potential.  All staff, are alert to the signs of possible abuse and know the procedures to be followed.  Our Child Protection Policy sets out guidance on the actions, which are required where abuse or neglect of a child is suspected and outlines referral procedures within our school. If you have any concerns about the safety of a child or need to report anything including concerns about staff or other adults then please get in touch using CONTACT DETAILS on the right of this page or in the page footer.
