Hutton Cranswick Community Primary School


Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play.'

Keeping Children Safe in Education (2023)

The pupils at Hutton Cranswick CP School are our responsibility and concern. We work in partnership with parents/carers and consider it a priority to inform and involve them 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/carers. The East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership 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.
