Parents/Carers should be aware that our school will take any reasonable action to safeguard the welfare of our pupils.
In cases where we believe that a child may be suffering from significant harm, ill treatment or neglect or other forms of harm, our staff have no alternative but to follow the Leeds Safeguarding Children's Board (LSCB) procedures.
Designated staff will contact Children's Services Duty and Advice to discuss the concerns.
Our aim is to always to be open and honest with parents/carers and discuss concerns with them first prior to approaching other agencies, however if staff feel that by contacting the parents/carers there is an increased risk of harm to a child then the school may contact another agency before speaking to the parents/carers.
We work with our whole staff to be aware of all safeguarding elements which could affect our children- these include county lines, Prevent, peer on peer abuse, FGM and other honour based related issues. In each and every case our team is updated in training and awareness and will not hesitate to take action in order to safeguard a child.
