Safeguarding

 

Harrogate Grammar School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of their students. Each student’s welfare is of paramount importance. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

This page provides easy accessible information with regard to services available to aid in safeguarding.

Every member of our community has the right to learn and work in a safe and caring environment in order to realise their true potential.

We are a community which values respect and positive relationships. School should be a place of tolerance where everyone is free from harassment, humiliation, intimidation and abuse.

Our collective responsibility is to, through positive actions and with mutual respect for one another, protect and maintain such an environment.

Therefore, our school does not tolerate bullying or harassment of any member of our community and all incidents are taken seriously. If you experience or witness this, please click on the REACH out button and use the form to report it.
