At Holyhead Primary Academy the safety and welfare of our children is the top priority.
We understand that the safeguarding responsibility of our staff, children and families is paramount. We support the Early Help process and have a Gold Award from the Sandwell Early Help Partnership showing our level of commitment. Furthermore, we work closely with families in order to provide the best support as well as signposting them and linking them with our established and developing community partners.
The term Safeguarding encompasses a wide range of aspects and it is the duty of everyone at Holyhead Primary Academy who comes into contact with the children to reinforce. It is our responsibility to provide a safe environment for every child and to ensure that they are safeguarded from maltreatment and impairment of their health or development.
Safeguarding and Child Protection are about ensuring every child has the best possible chance to achieve and to try to remove as many barriers as possible. We ensure our staff are trained in a multitude of safeguarding areas such as: Domestic Violence and Abuse Support, Female Genital Mutilation, Forced Marriage and Honour Based Abuse, Child Sexual Exploitation and many others.
