Safeguarding Newsletter December 2020

At Hautlieu School we are here to nurture and safeguard all students and staff within our community. We do this through a strong safeguarding and student support team who are available to offer guidance, advice and to sign post you or your son / daughter to outside agencies. The teams consist of Mrs Eleanor Mason, Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Louise Jackson, Education Welfare Officer, individual Heads of Year for each year group, mentors, school counsellor and our ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant).

Mrs Eleanor Mason is also our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) who works with the whole school community to oversee all elements of safeguarding within Hautlieu School. If you are concerned about the wellbeing, welfare or safety of your son or daughter please contact her on 736242. In her absence, Miss Claire Jackson assumes lead responsibility for this area; however, any member of the Senior Leadership Group would be available to assist with your call.

Hautlieu School has a full time school counsellor, Judy Cornwall, who works with individual students on a number of issues, including, self – esteem, relationships and offers strategies and guidance on social, emotional and mental health issues. Students can make appointments directly with Judy, or through Mrs Milner at the school office. The school counselling service is a confidential service and only safeguarding concerns will be shared outside of the counselling sessions.

Hautlieu School has strong links with external agencies such as CAMHs, Social services, YES, MIND Jersey, Brook and many more and referrals to external agencies can be made through the school, usually via the DSL. Linked to our school we have a specific Educational Psychologist, Educational Welfare officer and Family support worker who liaise with Hautlieu School to offer support to students and their families.

Information about school safeguarding policy and procedure can be found in the Safeguarding policy LINK which links to many other Hautlieu School policies and Education department policies.
