Safeguarding at Holte School

Safeguarding children and young people is central to everything we do at Holte School, and, as such, it features prominently throughout the whole website.

However, this section of the school’s website gives an overview of the policies, partnerships, programmes and mechanisms that are in place to safeguard the children and young people who attend Holte School.

The full suite of current and ratified Safeguarding policies is available to interested parties on request. However, the key policies are freely available to all, and are clearly signposted, as appropriate, on this website.  

At Holte, we fully recognise our responsibility for safeguarding children and young people. It is difficult to accept, but every child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity. That is why we do everything within our power to:

  • protect children from maltreatment;
  • prevent impairment of children’s health or development;
  • ensure that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
  • take action to enable all children and young people to secure the best outcomes.

The action we take at Holte School to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play and we recognise, and take our part very seriously in, this. We ensure that we operate a child-centred safeguarding system. We recognise that children want to be respected; have their views heard; to have stable relationships with their teachers, built on trust; and to have consistent support for their individual needs.

As Ofsted commented in our most recent inspection, students at Holte “thoroughly enjoy coming to school, know they are well cared for, listened to, are safe and know how to seek help if they need it. They treat each other, and staff with great respect.” [Ofsted, 2012]
