Safeguarding and Online safety

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.
