Safeguarding and Child Protection
Grange Moor Primary School is committed to the safeguarding of children in our care. The policies below set out how we do this. All staff in school are trained in safeguarding matters and are highly proficient at recognising signs of physical, emotional and sexual abuse and neglect. Staff are experienced in managing disclosures from children and how to refer cases to the Safeguarding Lead.
The school has a designated Safeguarding Lead - Mr. M. Rodgers
The school has a second designated Safeguarding Lead - Mrs. Linda Long
The School has two designated Safeguarding Governors - Mrs Laura Jones and Mrs Emma Garner
Grange Moor Primary School works with a number of agencies to ensure the effective safeguarding of children and will use them for advice and for proceeding with concerns.
If we have a concern about a child or a disclosure is made to a member of staff, this will be recorded and referred to the Safeguarding Lead. If we do have concerns regarding a child we will speak to the child's parents. If we believe a child is at risk or in danger of harm, we will contact the Duty and Assessment Team in Kirklees.
If you think a child might be suffering neglect or abuse, it can be difficult to know what to do. Your action is vital in making sure that child gets the help they need.
If you're worried about a child, contact your local council's social care department. They are available 24 hours a day on 01484 456848 / DutyandAdvice@kirklees.GCSX.gov.uk
If you think the child is in immediate danger, you should call the police.
Grange Moor Primary School is committed to the principles of safer recruitment. Any persons wishing to apply for any position, including volunteering in school, will be subject to full clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service. References will be sought for all appointments including volunteering.
