Hillside Special School

Hillside Special School
Sudbury, Suffolk


Hillside puts a high priority on children feeling safe and we take child protection very seriously. The school has a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which includes Child Protection. (This can be found on our 'Policies' page.) We work closely with other agencies, including Social Care Services, to safeguard children in our care. All staff receive regular child protection training and we employ Safer Recruitment practices in relation to the employment of all school staff and volunteers.
