Hinchley Wood School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school. Students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse.  

Hinchley Wood School follows the Surrey Safeguarding guidelines.  The school’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy, Addendum to Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy covering COVID-19 School Closure Arrangements, Safer Recruitment Procedure, Staff Code of Conduct and Procedures for Volunteers, Visitors, Supply Staff & Contractors - are available via the links at the bottom of this page.

We have a dedicated Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Team (EWMH) in school who students can be referred to for extra support and guidance during term time. Please refer to the Pastoral page for more information about this team.

The designated Staff for Child Protection are Mrs. K Cullen, Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) who works with a team of Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Miss R Wiscombe (DDSL), Mrs N Stevenson (DDSL), Mrs. K Chenney (DDSL) and Mr M Poole (DDSL). These people can be contacted if you or your child ever have a concern about the safety or well-being of others in school.

If you have a child protection or safeguarding concern outside of the school term times, please contact the Surrey Children’s Single Point of Access (C-SPA)
