 If there is an emergency, please call the police on 999 or 101 if not an emergency but you want to speak to the police.

 If you are concerned that you cannot keep someone safe due to mental health reasons, you can call 111 (NHS advice), 999 (emergency services) or take them straight to A&E. 

We want to work in partnership with you. We will share successes with you and discuss with you any concerns we may have.

Since our first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you. The procedures we follow have been laid down by the Surrey Safeguarding Board, and West Hill School has adopted a Safeguarding Policy in line with this for the safety and protection of all. If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

We take every precaution to ensure that all within our community are safe, healthy and happy. All West Hill staff have enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance. Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are listed below and their training is updated regularly.
