Safeguarding

We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and we try to work with parents and carers and local safeguarding services to ensure that the safety of children is of paramount importance.

The Children Act 1989 places a clear responsibility on school to ensure they work together with other agencies to safeguard and promote the wellbeing of all children. As a result, if concerns are raised within the school or a child or parent reports a situation involving possible abuse the school has a duty to inform the local Social Services Team Manager.

At Anlaby Primary School  Miss Taylor Wood and Mrs Rudd are the members of staff responsible for Child Protection. Mrs Janine Power is the Safeguarding Governor.

Any person employed to work with children in our school is expected to be cleared by a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS).

As part of our Safeguarding approach Miss Taylor Wood is our Pastoral Support Lead. To find out more about her role clock on the link below;

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next  school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

Operation Encompass is a Trauma Informed and Trauma Sensitive charity. We acknowledge and understand the impact of Domestic Abuse as an Adverse Childhood Experience.

Operation Encompass mitigates against the damaged caused by exposure to Domestic Abuse and other ACE’s
