The staff at Hamp Academy have an overriding responsibility to protect the children at our school and work in partnership with other agencies like the Health Authority, Social Services and the police.
As our first concern must be the well-being of your child, there may be occasions when we have to consult other agencies before we contact parents. The procedures we have to follow have been laid down in accordance with the Somerset Safeguarding Children's partnership.
