Safeguarding for Parents and Carers

What should I do if I am concerned about a child?

It is important that you act if you think a child is in danger of harm.

Safeguarding Useful information for the website Nov 23

We have a duty of care to ensure all of our children are safe.

If we have concerns about the safety of any children, we follow the procedures outlined in our Child Protection Policy. Parents are welcome to read this policy on the Policies | Oxenhope CE Primary School (oxenhopeprimary.org.uk)

It outlines how we deal with any issues when we think children may not be safe, including how we would act if we felt children were not safe at home.

All concerns are recorded and handed to a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) Mrs Alice Jones and the Designated Safeguarding Team.

We also invest a lot of time in supporting the whole family. Our pastoral team Gillian Dyson and Laura Woodhead are available to work with and support parents and carers when needed. You are welcome to call in and speak to them if you need to or you can make an appointment on 01535 642271.

The pastoral team also have access to Early Help support and can make referral for your child and your family.
