Hindhead Campus takes the safeguarding and the well-being of all our students extremely seriously. We have robust systems to keep children safe and to ensure that those who may seek to harm or injure students are kept off our campus.
Access to the site
- On arrival all visitors must report directly to reception, sign-in and read the Visitors leaflet
- Visitors must always wear a ‘Visitor’ or ‘Volunteer’ or “Trustee” lanyard/badge whilst on site
- There is only one entrance to the school via electronic gates which are operated by the reception staff
- If anyone on the site sees any entrance open they have a duty of care to close it and report it
- Students should be reminded that they also have a duty to check gates, close and report any that are left open
- Supply teachers will have had identification and clearance details sent by their agency in advance. Without this, they are unable to have access to the school site
- All visitors to the school site must be approved by the Head teacher or our Trustees
Child protection and safeguarding is everybody’s concern and as such it is important that each and every one of us reports any concerns.
Staff – Safety and Training
All new staff will have an induction training package for Child Protection and Safeguarding on appointment. The Designated Safeguarding Lead, the Deputies and a Trustee will complete the latest child protection training at least every two years. There will be annual refresher training for all staff.
All staff are issued with a Hindhead Campus identification badge. Any adult on site not wearing an identification badge must be challenged by any member of staff. Any person unable to provide identification must be reported immediately to reception.
