Headteacher - Mrs Fiona Wharton

Guiseley Primary School

Guiseley Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children.

Safeguarding

Guiseley Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, which can be viewed on our Policies page. Below is our Safeguarding and Child Protection policy and a School Child Friendly version.


Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy 2022 2023

Child Friendly Child Protection Policy

Keeping children safe  

What does the law say schools must do? The Department for Education's key document is called 'Keeping children safe in education'. It is a statutory requirement that all staff working in school adhere to the guidance set out in this document. 

Sometimes we may 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 our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Designated Safeguarding leads 

Our Designated Lead for Safeguarding Children (DSL) is Mrs Bradbury. She is supported by Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads; Miss Adair who is our Deputy Headteacher, Mr Partridge and Mrs Hewitt who is our Learning Mentor. In addition, we have a Nominated Safeguarding Governor, who ensures school policies and practice are robustly implemented, this is Mr Graham Jarvis.

The main work of a Safeguarding Lead is to:

  • Make sure all staff are aware how to raise safeguarding concern
  • Ensure all staff understand the symptoms of child abuse and neglect
  • Refer any concerns to social care
  • Monitor children who are the subject of child protection plans
  • Maintain accurate and secure child protection records
