HLC is committed to keeping children safe both in and outside school. We have staff who are trained, in each area of HLC, to deal with Safeguarding and Child Protection. The students and staff know who these people as the information is highly visible around the building. In addition, all of our staff receive regular training on Safeguarding.

If you have any concern about the safety of a child at HLC then please contact one of our Designated staff listed below. If it is outside of school hours/weekends or holidays then please telephone Family Connect (run by Telford and Wrekin Council) on 01952 385385 to speak to a Safeguarding Advisor.

HOME ALONE GUIDE As your child gets older, they’ll often want to have a little more independence. But how can you make sure they’re safe when they’re not with you? At some point, every parent will have to spend some time away from their child. Work, appointments and family commitments can mean that there are lots of places you have to be. You may even need to take a break and grab some ‘me’ time. This guide can help you decide what’s best for your child, prepare them for being home alone, and make sure they’re safe.
