Statement to Parents 

At Craven Primary Academy, the welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our school. We will always try to share any concerns we have with parents.  However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents. 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Mrs Hartmann . In his absence please speak to a member of the Child Protection team.

Our Designated Child Protection team includes

Mrs Hartmann – Head of Academy

Mr Gillen/Mrs Hamby – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead


Due to the most recent lockdown, we have amended our safeguarding policy to include an updated Annexe A which states how we continue to protect children and families while national and local restrictions are in place. This can be found here.

You can read our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy on our Statutory Information page here.

Below is a table of different themes, trips and visitors that our children experience across their time at Craven so that they are taught to keep themselves safe.
