At Hardwick Primary School we have a strong culture of safeguarding. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We believe that all those who come into contact with children and families in their everyday work, including those who do not have a specific role in relation to safeguarding children, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
