Safeguarding

Holyhead School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its students. We believe that:
  • All children/young people have the right to be protected from harm
  • Children/young people need to be safe and to feel safe in school 
  • Children/young people need support which matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse
  • All children/young people have the right to speak freely and voice their values and beliefs 
  • All children/young people must be encouraged to respect each other’s values and support each other 
  • All children/young people have the right to be supported to meet their emotional, and social needs as well as their educational needs – a happy healthy sociable child/young person will achieve better educationally 
  • Schools can and do contribute to the prevention of abuse, victimisation, bullying (including homophobic, bi-phobic, trans-phobic and cyber-bullying), exploitation, extreme behaviours, discriminatory views and risk-taking behaviours 
  • All staff and visitors have an important role to play in safeguarding children and protecting them from abuse
