  1. Safeguarding


Safeguarding is our first priority, with all members of staff being vigilant and proactive at all times in order to ensure the safety of everyone in school. As a school, we have signed up to the Young People's Safeguarding Charter and we liaise closely with all external professionals including the Wakefield Safeguarding Partners (WSCP) i.e. the Police, Local Authority and health professionals to ensure that all individuals and families receive the support that they need.

Governors receive on-going information and an annual report outlining safeguarding procedures and developments.
