Holy Trinity RC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed below.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Child Protection Officer is Mrs Lyle (Headteacher). Our Backup Designated Child Protection Officer is Mrs Pickup (SENCO and Year 5/6 Teacher). Governor responsible for Child Protection is Mr Simm

Indecent Images of Children (IIOC)
A victim is any child under 18 who has sent an indecent image of themselves, and once sent to another person the child is deemed to have lost control of that image. To remove a IIOC off social media, you need to contact UK Safer Internet Centre on 0844 381 4772. They can remove images almost straight away.
