We take child protection extremely seriously at our school. If you have a concern, you can speak to any of the school’s designated and trained Child Protection officers:
Oakhill's Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Morris
Rev. Richard Priestley - Designated school Governor for safeguarding
The school also has access to a Parent and Family Support Advisor (PFSA) John Anderson, who can be contacted through the school.
Visiting or joining our school
A member of the office staff ensures that the school gates are kept locked during the school day, so all visitors are asked to report to the main entrance. Please be mindful that for everybody’s safety, identification procedures will be carried out; a copy of which are displayed by the office for your information.
All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.
