The school is committed to creating and maintaining a safe learning environment for children and young people, identifying where there are child welfare concerns and taking action to address them, in partnership with families and other agencies.

The school will also contribute through the curriculum through:

- a carefully structured RSE curriculum that meets the needs of all pupils across the setting;

-a fully developed PSHCE curriculum;

-a focus on the development of communication and self advocasy;

-a focus on physical development and independence;

-a curriculum that supports the development of understanding around key areas of safeguarding e.g. safe use of the internet;

-an adapted environment that enables pupils to rehearse and practice personal safety;

-target setting that prepares for adulthood from the earliest point;

-enrichment activities, assemblies, trips and theme days that enable a more focused exploration of key safeguarding themes;


Central to safeguarding is the voice, knowledge and understanding of all stakeholders involved. Beyond the work within the curriculum we ensure safeguarding is central to practice at Hebden Green through:

-a focus in the Pupil Council;

-Pupil surveys and other feedback;

-Parent survey and newsletters;

-staff bulletins and surveys;

-specific staff and governor training.
