Here at Beverley St Nicholas Primary School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. Below is our school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy along with further guidance from the DfE.
If you are a young person, family member, carer, or member of the public and you want to discuss a child that you are worried about, or make a self-referral you can contact the Safeguarding and Partnership Hub (SaPH) during office hours on (01482) 395500 – Choose ‘Option 1’ and a social worker will be able to talk through your worries with you and discuss what happens next.
If you are ever concerned that a child is in immediate danger please call the police on 999.
Safeguarding children and young people is the responsibility of everyone.
