Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies and Procedures

Safeguarding for Pupils and Parents


Our safeguarding policies are continually under review and we follow all guidance from Dudley Safeguarding Board.


We have a statutory duty to ‘safeguard and promote the welfare of children’. If you have any concerns about the health and safety of a child at this school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away. Do not worry if you may be reporting matters which seem small – we would rather you tell us something which does turn out to be minor, than miss a worrying situation.


During term time, the Designated Safeguarding Leaders and/or deputies will be available during school hours for staff to discuss any safeguarding concerns.


Designated Safeguarding Leaders: 

Mrs S Hammond 


Deputy Safeguarding Leaders:        

Mrs K Evans 

Mr D Stanier 

Mr J Ross

Miss R Savoy

Ms L Tyler 


Governors for Safeguarding:               

Mrs J Holt

Mrs K Leach


Chair of Governors:

Mrs J Holt


All can be contacted via the school by

Telephone   (01384) 816930 

Email           info@hawbush.dudley.sch.uk


Further information is available on the Dudley useful links page



If you are concerned about a child or young person


Safeguarding is about us working together to make sure that children, young people and adults are safe and protected, free from harm, abuse or neglect. Adults should also be free to make their own choices. If you are concerned about a child or young person please call the Dudley Safeguarding People Partnership on the telephone numbers below.


  • During office hours call the children's services service on 0300 555 0050 selecting option 4 (9:00am - 5:00pm Mon-Fri).
  • Out of office hours contact the Emergency Duty Team on 0300 555 8574.
  • In an emergency call 999.


If you contact Dudley Safeguarding you will speak to a professional who will listen to your concerns. They may take a few details and might need to contact you again but your concern will be dealt with quickly and appropriately.


You do not need to provide your name or give contact details if you do not wish to do so. Anonymous calls will not be ignored.


Alternatively you can contact the NSPCC on 0800 800 5000 or email  them by visiting their website https://www.nspcc.org.uk/



Early Help


The revised Early Help Strategy was endorsed by the Children and Young Peoples Alliance Board in April 2018. This strategy sets out the pathway for Early Help in Dudley and will ensure that the appropriate level of support is put in place for our children, young people and families. Investing in our children and young people now will ensure we build strong, resilient and thriving communities in the future.

Our safeguarding policy can be found in the Safeguarding section of the policies page alongside other important safeguarding documents.

How does our Curriculum support pupils' developing understanding of how to keep themselves safe?


Since September 2017, we have introduced '3D PSHE' which is a curriculum that is designed to enable pupils' to be taught about key safeguarding issues such as Anti-Bullying, E-Safety and Relationship Education in a  safe environment as well as lots of other key aspects. Below is an outline of some of the curriculum coverage to give you a taste of what we learn about in these sessions. For further information please contact the school office.
