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. 

The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart.

Our Deisgnated Safeguarding Lead is: Mr Phillips . In his absence please speak to a member of the Child Protection team.

Our Designated Child Protection team includes

Mr Phillips - Head of Academy

Mrs Hartmann - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

 Mr Gillen - Education Support Officer

Mrs Hamby - Finance Officer.

Due to the most recent lockdown, we have ammended 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.

As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child.  Here at Craven Primary Academy we are taking this extremely seriously and have trained all staff in looking for signs. 

Please look at the leaflet below for further information for you as parents.

Prevent (Extremism/Radicalisation)

As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child. We have put together this leaflet to help you understand more about extremism and radicalisation, and how you can deal with these issues.

Operation Encompass

We are taking part in a innovative project that schools in Humberside are participating in. The project, called Operation Encompass, is being run in partnership with Humberside Police.

The project aims to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse. Being exposed to domestic abuse is distressing for a young person, who can often see the abuse, hear it from another room, see a parent's injuries or distress afterwards or be physically hurt trying to stop the abuse.

As a result, following any domestic abuse incident being reported into Humberside Police specialist Police Officers will make contact with the school and communicate relevant and necessary information to nominated and trained school staff.  This will ensure that we are made aware before the start of the next school day and can subsequently provide support in a way that means the child feels safe. 

All of our staff and a key adult, have been fully trained to liaise with the Police, when required, and will ensure that necessary support is made available to the child following the disclosure of a domestic abuse incident. 

In the meantime, if you would like to speak to someone about the project or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Winstanley. You can also find out more information through accessing the following website: Operation Encompass
