The Hayling College recognises that safeguarding encompasses the duties of Child Protection and promoting the rights and welfare of children. As such:
- It is everyone’s responsibility to safeguard children
- Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play
- Everyone working with children maintains an attitude of ‘it could happen here’.
The Hayling College is committed to safeguarding children and will remain vigilant in respect to all types of abuse and neglect, as well as safeguarding issues highlighted in the most recent guidance: Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016.
The College's policy for Safeguarding and Child Protection is available on the website in the policies section. This policy details what the College will do to safeguard its students, as well as detailing information about abuse and procedures within school to tackle this.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead at The Hayling College is: Helen Cox
Deputies: Ian Mills, Jeanette King, Marnie Clark, Vikki Bennett, Jim Wells, Joanne Raggett and Sarah Trumper
