Keeping children safe
At Holy Trinity the safety of your child is very important to us. All staff are trained in safeguarding procedures and there are two designated Safeguarding Leads (Mr Brereton and Mrs Ainsworth).
A detailed description of our procedures can be found by reading our Safeguarding Policy in the Policies section. You can also see a copy of the 2021 Safeguarding Audit by clicking here.
If you have any concerns about a child's safety please contact one of the Designated Leads or ring the Tameside Public Service Hub on 0161 342 4101 (0161 342 2222 out of hours). If you believe a child is at an immediate risk of harm dial 999.
Many families go through difficult times. If you or another member of your family is struggling please come to see us as soon as possible. We are here to help and support you and your child.

The Governments PREVENT Strategy is designed to stop children being radicalised and getting involved in extremist activities. If you have a concern about your child or someone else in your family, please talk to one of the safeguarding leads. You may also find this leaflet for parents useful.
In October 2017 our school is implementing a new project that will run jointly between schools and Greater Manchester Police. This project is called Operation Encompass. It aims to support children who are affected by domestic abuse by ensuring that their school is informed. This allows the school to support the children. If you have any questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the school or follow this link http://www.operationencompass.org/
