At Hamstel Junior School we put the safeguarding and wellbeing of the children first.  We teach our children how to keep themselves safe, form positive relationships and know who to speak to it they need help.

We work with our families and outside agencies to support them and all our staff have a duty of care to report any concerns and always act in the best interests of the child.

The School's Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are 


Mrs Chris Farrell                                                                                        Mrs Claire Heron

Headteacher                                                                                              Child and Family Support Officer

All members of the senior leadership team are all designated safeguarding leads


If you are concerned about a child in our school then ask to speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead straight away.
