Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Safeguarding in Lessons

We work closely together to create a stable, happy and hard-working community where everyone matters, and the safety of pupils in placed at the heart of everything we do.

Safeguarding is taught throughout the curriculum in every year whilst your child is at Hobmoor. Tailored to suit the year group, and build in throughout the standard curriculum and in special enrichment and PSHE lessons, we want each of our young people to feel safe, confident and leave us with the knowledge they need to be successful in life.
