We place safeguarding at the heart of everything we do at Hurworth School.  We recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, and we work hard to maintain a ‘Culture of Vigilance’ through appropriate formal training from Darlington Local Authority as well as regular ‘in-house’ training, as well as Clennell and updates to ensure that keeping our students safe is our staff members’ highest priority.

We support our student’s understanding of keeping safe through our Core Values and through our bespoke spiral Personal Development curriculum, ensuring that they learn about strategies to keep themselves safe as well as the risks to be aware of in the modern world.

In addition to our Personal Development curriculum, we use themed days or weeks to raise the profile of spotlight issues: including Anti-Bullying Week, Safer Internet Day, Mental Health Awareness, Personal Safety Week and Speak Out Safely area of the website. Through regular revisiting of themes and issues, we aim for our students to develop the appropriate strategies to keep themselves throughout their time at the Hurworth and beyond.
