Child Protection and Safeguarding

It is a legal requirement for every school to have a named designated safeguarding lead. At Hele’s School the designated safeguarding leads are Mrs S Crawford (Senior Designated Person, Year 7, Drake and Scott), Mrs E Clapham (Reynolds and Weston), Mr K Stone (Post 16) and Mrs J Mann.


Remember these three important messages:

  • All children have a right to be safe no matter what their circumstance

  • Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility

  • We all need to listen to children even though we may not always be comfortable with what we hear

Please contact us within school hours if you have a concern. We cannot keep safeguarding concerns about children and young people confidential and may need to pass information on to Children’s Social Care or the police to investigate further.

Useful contacts:

Emergency services: 999
Plymouth Children’s Social Care: 01752 308600 (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm)

Our policies and procedures are consistent with South West Child Protection procedures (for further details please see here) and respond to the statutory guidance outlined in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018.
