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 2021' 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.

School Around the Family - Early Help Support

A key element of our locality model is the “Team around the School” approach. The TAS approach aims to co-ordinate education, health and social care services, working together to offer support to children and their families, providing earlier intervention and targeted short-term pieces of work.


This approach supports effective early intervention to prevent needs escalating to levels that compromise outcomes not for only these children, but the impact from the disruption on the other children within settings.


See the flowchart below to see how the Early Help work at St Hilda's works. In addition to this school also send out pastoral support letters which offer to support to all families.
