Safeguarding /eSafety

Colney Heath School is determined to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to protect children and young people from harm.

Every child and young person who participates in the organisation’s activities should be able to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from harm. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in the organisation.

The school recognises that child abuse can be an emotive subject. It is important to understand the feelings involved and not to allow them to interfere with judgment about any action that needs to be taken.

Colney Heath School recognises its responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.


Our policy is written in accordance with Hertfordshire’s Safeguarding Children Board’s Procedures.

The school will ensure that;

  • The welfare of the child remains paramount.
  • All children whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/ or sexual identity have the right to be protected from harm.
  • All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • All adults (paid/ unpaid) working in the organisation have a responsibility to report concerns to Mr Rose or Mrs Clark.

Keeping your children safe online is essential.  Through our computing curriculum we teach your children about the dangers and how to keep themselves safe.  Every year we support Safer Internet Day.
