We believe that school should be a place where pupils feel safe, valued and listened to. 

That is why we work hard to ensure that  all our staff understand their roles and responsibilities in the effective safeguarding and protection of every child in our care.

Our senior designated member of staff for child protection is Mr Phillip Painter (Head of Family Team).  He works alongside two other child protection designated staff: Mrs Kellie Halliday (Headteacher) and Mrs Angela Mcloughlin (Head of Inclusion).

Designated staff are responsible for ensuring that:

  • timely and appropriate safeguarding action is taken where necessary, following local and national policy and procedure;
  • staff at Hovingham are equipped with the necessary training and development; and
  • robust systems are in place for recording and safely sharing information.
