At Hawthorn, we take the safety and wellbeing of the children in our school very seriously and we expect all staff, volunteers, governors and parents to do the same

We have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which is available on this website, a paper copy is available by request. (click here for policies)

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child in our school please speak to one of our safeguarding leads.
