Otley All Saints CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children, and staff at school.
Our policies and procedures are based on the Department for Education’s statutory guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) and Working Together to Safeguard Children (WTTSC 2018) and the Governance Handbook. We comply with this guidance and the procedures set out by the Leeds Safeguarding Children partnership (LSCP).
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, but the designated staff for child protection are:
Mr Ian Thomson-Smith - Headteacher & Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs Jessica Sutton, Mrs Laura Fortune and Mrs Jane Scott- Designated Child Protection Officers
If you have any concerns about safeguarding at All Saints, contact one of these members of staff. If you feel the staff are not addressing the concern adequately, you should contact the Local Authority Designated Officer on 0113 2478652.
