Holywell Primary and Nursery School

The safety of the children is of paramount importance here at Holywell.  Mr Hamilton is our Designated Safeguarding Leader and Miss Jones is the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leader.  Miss Evans is currently the Early Years Designated Safeguarding Leader.  You can see their photographs on the Staff page https://www.holywellschool.org/staff/

It is the duel responsibility of the school and parents to ensure that our children are adequately armed with the understanding, skills and information they need in order to stay safe both inside the school and outside.

This webpage signposts our parents to a range of websites which may help when talking with children about a range of safety issues.
