Safeguarding

At Hawkley Hall High school, your child’s safety and wellbeing is very important to us. Our students regularly receive guidance and support in school about how to keep themselves safe but we recognise that sometimes, as parents and carers, you may also wish to seek advice or support regarding an issue which is affecting your child.  This section of our school website will signpost you to resources and information that you may find helpful on a range of issues that affect our young people.

If you need advice or support regarding any safeguarding concerns relating to your child, please ring the school office and a member of the safeguarding team will contact as soon as they are available.
