Safeguarding at Nunthorpe Primary Academy

Parents, carers and staff all have the safety and wellbeing of our children at the centre of the decisions they make, both in and out of School. Keeping children safe is everyones responsibility.

Members of the public, as well as staff in helping agencies, can play a vital role in helping to protect children from abuse or neglect. Whilst the child’s welfare is always the most important consideration, there is also a duty on professionals to work in partnership with parents, to provide support where necessary and to ensure that children remain with their families wherever possible.

Staff at Nunthorpe Primary Academy receive annual Child Protection training. The School maintains a Single Central Record which records all the adults who work with children at our school. We also only work with contractors (for example builders) who can meet our requirements regarding safeguarding of pupils.
