Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board

http://www.calderdale-scb.org.uk/

A Local Safeguarding Children Board’s primary focus must be the safety, protection and promotion of the welfare of all children and young people. The Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board (CSCB) consists of the Safeguarding Board, Business Group and various Sub Groups.

Safeguarding is extremely important to us. We take rigorous steps to ensure that our children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
We have a duty to ensure children are safe. In school we do this by making sure that everyone who comes into the building is suitable to work with children. We also work hard to minimise risk in the grounds and building. If we have concerns about the safety of any children we have a policy in school, which can be viewed from the menu on the left. All concerns are recorded and handed to a Designated Senior Lead.
Designated Senior Safeguarding Leads
Our Designated Senior Leads are Mrs C Palmer (Assistant Headteacher) and Ms L Newcombe (Headteacher).

As a team we decide how to deal with concerns about children's safety. This would usually involve speaking to parents or people from other agencies, such as health or social care.
If we feel a child is at risk of harm we would usually discuss this with parents. We then have a duty of care to report our concerns. If you have any questions or concerns about safeguarding please speak to one of the designated senior leads above.
