All staff believe that our school should provide a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.
The Governing Body takes seriously its responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and works together with staff and external agencies to ensure there are appropriate arrangements within our school to identify, assess and support those children who are at risk. We recognise that all staff and Governors have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern.
We promote fundamental British Values and protect our children from extremist views and actions. Our school follows the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board’s procedures including PREVENT procedures.
If you have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing or a child or children in our school, please do not hesitate to inform us.
