Safeguarding Policy


Original information provided by North Yorkshire County Council which contributed to the development of Kirklees Model Policy for Safeguarding in Schools is acknowledged.

The policy is in line with: West Yorkshire Consortium Safeguarding Children Procedures (see link from Kirklees Safeguarding Children Board website at  or go direct to the manual at: Working Together to Safeguard Children” (2018 with updates), ‘What to do if you are worried a child is being abused’ (2015), ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (2021)

School Commitment

This policy applies to all adults, including volunteers, working in or on behalf of the school. This Policy reflects the consensus of opinion of the whole staff, and was approved at the Autumn 2021 meeting of the Governing Body.

‘Everyone working in or for our school service shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:

  • providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn and develop in our school setting, and
  • identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in our school setting’

Crowlees School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse.  We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that they may exhibit concerning behaviours and at times this may impact on other children either directly or indirectly. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
