GEORGE PINDAR SCHOOL IS PART OF

Safeguarding

Safeguarding

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

Safeguarding includes the establishment and implementation of procedures to protect children from deliberate harm, however, safeguarding also encompasses all aspects of pupils’ health, and safety and well-being.

George Pindar School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. We 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 Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr B Murray

The school’s Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss H Pickles

‘Know, Look, Act’ – new campaign to spot signs of child abuse

In a new joint campaign by The Children’s Society and National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC), neighbours and professionals are being urged to look out for signs a child may be being abused at home amid fears that vulnerable children are hidden from view during the lockdown.  The ‘Know, Look, Act’ campaign comes as most pupils face an extended summer break, with schools and colleges now not set to fully reopen until September. 
 
More information about The Children’s Society’s Prevention programme, which works to prevent and improve responses to child sexual abuse and exploitation, child criminal exploitation, modern day slavery and human trafficking regionally and nationally in England and Wales, can be found here

If you have any concerns about a child, please act.
