Safeguarding at The Hawthorns School


Safeguarding our students is a priority at The Hawthorns School.  Our policies and practices ensure that our students are monitored effectively and are able to develop in a safe and supportive environment.


At The Hawthorns School, we follow Essex Guidelines for Child Protection (SET), found at Essex Safeguarding Children Board.


All volunteers and visitors should be aware of our procedures for safeguarding children.  Our policies include:


  • Safeguarding and Child Protection
  • Anti-Bullying
  • Behaviour and Relationships Policy
  • Safer Recruitment
  • Equal Opportunities


All our policies can be found here. Policies | The Hawthorns School
