Our attitude towards safeguarding is…

Havelock Junior School believes that all children have a right to grow up and learn in a safe and secure environment.  If we have any concerns about a child’s safety we will speak to you as parents in the first instance. Often through us talking things through the concerns that have been raised are explained or further support is arranged and we move forward from there. Very occasionally we have concerns are raised that we may feel, that by talking directly with you, may put the child more at risk.  In some instances these cases are then referred to Social Services.  This procedure enables us to protect children at risk and we make no apology for taking the attitude that where there are grounds for suspicion it is better to be safe than sorry.  Unfortunately this means that we risk upsetting some parents by reporting a case, which upon investigation proves unfounded.
