At The Holme we take safeguarding and child protection very seriously.  We audit our provision annually and make sure we are always up-to-date with government legislation and advice.  All staff receive training which is supplemented by briefings and information on the staff safeguarding notice board.  

In our January audit, carried out by the Trust, it was judged that 'the school clearly takes safeguarding extremely seriously and does much to ensure staff and pupils are safe' and we were praised for our provision.


If you have any concerns about a child, you should report them to the school, to:

Ms Worswick (headteacher)

Mrs Cooper (assistant headteacher)

Mrs Skidmore (safeguarding governor)
