Safeguarding

Hillside puts a high priority on children feeling safe and we take child protection very seriously. The school has a Safeguarding Policy which includes Child Protection. 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.
