Safeguarding

"Pupils feel very safe in the school's caring environment. The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding."

(Ofsted, May 2015)

The pupils at Hutton Cranswick CP School are our responsibility and concern. We work in partnership with parents and consider it a priority to inform and involve the parents at every stage in their child’s time at the school.

 

There may be occasions when concerns about a child mean that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact the parents. The East Riding Safeguarding Children Board has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this to ensure the safety of everyone.

If you want to know more about the schools policies or procedures, below are the contact details for the designated people within school:

 

Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) - Mrs Liz Burkinshaw, Headteacher

Deputy DSL - Miss Hannah Midgley,  Deputy Head

Deputy DSL - Mrs Claire Leeks, SENCo

 

Safeguarding and Child Protection Governor - Mrs S Hills and Mrs A Lilly
