At Cherry Tree Hill Primary School we are committed to supporting all of our children to do well. We will do everything we can to ensure our children are safeguarded and protected from harm.


If you are you worried about a child?


  • If you have concerns that a child is being harmed or living in circumstances that might be harmful in the future, these concerns will always be taken seriously.
  • You may be worried about what might happen to you or your family if you report your concerns. When someone makes a call to talk about their concerns, they will always be asked for their name and contact details - so they can be contacted again if needed. However, you can ask for your details to remain confidential, or provide information anonymously.


Getting help


  • Please email at any time, at  including holidays and weekends, and it will be answered as soon as possible. The Safeguarding Leader on duty will always monitor this email account and respond to emails over the holiday period from parents as well as professionals regarding safeguarding issues.

Please do not keep your worries to yourself!



  • E-safety is a priority at Cherry Tree Hill. The internet is not going to go away so teaching the children about how to use it safely and properly is a key responsibility for us.  It is therefore important that we work together as a school community to ensure that our children are kept safe. 


Advice for Parents

  • It is important that you are aware of what young people are able to do and what they can access on the Internet.  You are able to set parental controls to track what your children do and to limit what they can access.
