Safeguarding Statement

Hemingbrough CP Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All North Yorkshire schools, including Hemingbrough CP  School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures).

The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s Child Protection policy is available in the policies section of the web site.

Mrs Sarah Chappell is the Designated Lead for child protection. Mrs Helen Taylor is the Deputy Designated Lead.

Our safeguarding governor is Mrs Joelene Grassby (Acting Chair of Governors). 

All staff, governors and volunteers have NYCC safeguarding training.

The Headteacher has Keeping Children Safe on Line Training. She also has Level 3 Child Protection and Safer Recruitment training along with the Deputy Designated Lead.

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. Staff, Governors and volunteers have taken the appropriate training to fulfill their roles in this.
