Safeguarding at Anston Hillcrest


All the governors and staff at Anston Hillcrest share a core purpose, to help keep the children safe, by contributing to:

  • Providing a safe environment for them to learn

  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm and taking appropriate action, with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe both at home and in the education setting


To achieve this objective, we:

  • Prevent unsuitable people from working with the children

  • Promote safe practice and challenge any poor or unsafe practice

  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe

  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children


For further information about how we keep children safe in our setting please read the school's Child Protection and Safeguarding policy and Digital safeguarding policy. We follow the guidance set out by the Rotherham Safeguarding Partnership. Please see the information on Safeguarding Children's Partnership.

Keeping your child safe


The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) wants to help parents and carers talk to their children about keeping themselves safe.  For further information about the NSPCC and what they offer regarding safeguarding please visit the website NSPCC.


One of the ways we teach our children to be safe is from them to learn that there are parts of the body that are private and The Underwear Rule is just one way that - together - we can help prevent child abuse.

The Talking Pants Parents' Guide tells you all about it. On the website there is a Learn the Underwear Rule guide for children too.
