                                                 Keeping Children Safe at Hilltop 

Hilltop Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our children. All staff and Governors share this commitment.

Safeguarding is a priority and ‘the golden thread’ that runs through our school.

Every pupil, member of staff and visitor deserves to be safe and to feel safe when at school. Safeguarding of everyone is a priority for the Governing Body, all staff, pupils and their families, volunteers and visitors. Safeguarding is the responsibility of all of us.
