Keeping Children Safe
William Byrd is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors. We promote an environment where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.
If you have a safeguarding concern about the welfare of a child you are required to report this immediately to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads or a senior member of staff.
Outside of school hours please contact Hillingdon Social Services on 01895 556 006
For more information about our approach to safeguarding please see our policies:
We are an Operation Encompass School
The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and the police.
Operation Encompass is the notification to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, of incidents where a child or young person has experienced or been exposed to any domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, (DSL) known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared in confidence. They will also ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have experienced a domestic abuse incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
