Keeping Children Safe In Our School
At Northowram School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all members of the school community to share this commitment. Our school actively promotes fundamental British values. This commitment includes staff, governors, volunteers and contractors working on the school site.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment and these can be found on our website.
Sometimes we need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that this would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalisation and extremism.
Jane Jennings is our Designated Safeguarding Lead. She is the lead person in our school and the person to contact if you have concerns about a child. Mrs Scardifield and Miss Horsfall are also Designated Safeguarding Leads. David Bates is our Safeguarding Governor.
