The Children’s Hospital School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Our policy reflects current legislation, accepted best practice and complies with the following government guidance:
- Working Together to Safeguard Children (March 2018)

If you have a concern please contact the school on 0116 2298137 and ask to speak to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads. If you need to contact us out of normal school hours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We receive Operation Encompass Information from Leicestershire Police, when police attending incidents where they feel that there has been a tangible impact upon a child is physical, emotional or mental well-being. This is shared in confidence with our Designated Safeguarding Leads.
