Safeguarding and Child Protection

St Hilda’s CE (VA) Primary School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.


We follow the requirements set out in 'Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020' and 'Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018'.  

The following 3 safeguarding partners are identified in Keeping Children Safe in Education (and defined in the Children Act 2004, as amended by chapter 2 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017). They will make arrangements to work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of local children, including identifying and responding to their needs: 

  • The local authority (LA)  
  • A clinical commissioning group for an area within the LA
  • The chief officer of police for a police area in the LA area.
    In Bury Local Authority it is ‘Bury Integrated Safeguarding Partnership’ (BISP).


Please read our Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy & Procedures document for further information.
