All Saints’ CE School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. We promote fundamental British Values and protect our children from extremist views and actions. Our school follows the Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board procedures, including PREVENT procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Multi-Agency Screening Team (MAST) and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board Procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is available by clicking this LINK and is reviewed annually.
If you have any concerns regarding the safety or well-being of a child or children at the school, please don't hesitate to inform us to allow appropriate actions to be taken.
Mr Sharp, Mrs Dumbreck, Miss Greenwood and Mr Stuttard are the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) in school.
Thank you to West Yorkshire Police for working collaboratively with us to continue to deliver key messages about staying safe (this included online safety, too). The workshop was engaging, interactive and thought-provoking. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the future!
With special thanks to the Community Police Team:
Colin Dixon, Sarah Dixon and Liz Calkeld
