All Saints' CE Primary School

Safeguarding

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, endeavor 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 reviewed annually. 

Reporting Concerns About A Child

Child Protection is one aspect of our safeguarding work.  We all have a duty to safeguard children and all staff and volunteers working in school have regular training and are familiar with the statutory guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education (2020).  Staff are trained in the signs of abuse and are skilled at recognising these.  Any concerns are reported to our Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Watson and she is ably supported by the Deputy Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Dyson, Mrs Sheppard and Miss Terry.  

All Saints' School encourages all parents and carers to be vigilant to ensure that as a community we keep all our children safe.  If any parent or carer has concerns about their own child or another child, they should pass these on to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads.  If a parent or carer has a concern about the way in which a member of staff has behaved towards a child, these concerns should be discussed with the headteacher, Mrs Watson.  If the concern is relating to the headteacher, the concerns should be shared with the Chair of Governors.

Further advice and information for children can be found on Calderdale's Safeguarding Children Partnership website: www.calderdale-safeguarding.co.uk

 

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.

Mrs Watson, Mrs Sheppard, Miss Terry and Mrs Dyson are the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) in school.  Tel. 01422 367140

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:
