The welfare of children and young people are considered to be of paramount importance at Hungerhill School and we maintain an ethos where students feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s priority at Hungerhill School. Hungerhill follows the statutory guidance for schools Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 which states:
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as:

Doncaster have released a list of groups offering support throughout the Coronavirus outbreak
Early help is preventative, by providing support to families when a need is identified or as soon as a problem emerges at any point in a child's life, from conception, through childhood and into adolescence. It can also prevent further problems arising by building resilience with families to find their own solutions in the future.
It should not be seen as a specific service, but any service, and crucially how services work collectively through tailored support packages for specific needs in individual families.
Contact details for Early Help:
The Early Help Hub on 01302 734110 or;
The Early Help Coordinator team on 01302 736250, Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm.
