The health, safety and welfare of all the people who work or learn at our school are of fundamental importance.   Our ethos is one of protection and trust.  There is a strong bond of mutual respect between adults and pupils within the school.  We aim to provide a safe, secure and pleasant working environment for everyone.  The Governing Body, along with Norfolk County Council, takes responsibility for protecting the health and safety of all children and members of staff.

Our pupils understand how to ask for help and who they can go to, and they are confident that their concerns will be dealt with appropriately.

Mr Try, our Headteacher is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for the school.  Mrs White (our Acting Deputy Headteacher) and Mrs Fysh (our Early Years Phase Leadrer) are both Alternate DSLs.  All three of these members of staff are fully trained in safeguarding and can be contacted by adults and pupils about any concerns.

At Hillcrest school the health and safety, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children is of paramount importance.  Parents and Carers send their children to school each day with an expectation that school provides a secure environment in which their children can flourish.  We therefore have to ensure that this expectation becomes a reality.  In order to do this a wide range of measures are put in place. 

Pupils will not be identified by name on this website, though their photographs may appear if parents have given permission.
