Please take a few moments to read this leaflet. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our young people and this requires all staff and visitors to demonstrably share this commitment.

Contained in this leaflet is information about our child protection procedures and guidance on what you should do if you have any concerns.

Safeguarding leaflet – Trifold

As with any large organisation Hayle Community School has a series of policies and procedures that help clarify the way we operate.  Some of these are statutory, some are advisory and some are individual to our school. A full set is available at the school but on this website we have placed those policies that are most frequently requested.

Policies are reviewed regularly by the Governing Body, some annually and some on a two or three year cycle. The most up-to-date versions are included here.

Should you have any queries about any of these policies or any other areas of school practice please contact us through the contact page on this website.

Hayle Academy has policies and procedures in place to deal effectively with child protection and safeguarding issues together with recording and monitoring processes. Hayle Academy works effectively with other agencies and parents/carers when necessary to safeguard young people.

All staff and governors receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding training and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within school.
