Governmental update on Safeguarding during coronavirus outbreak

At Primley Wood Primary we pride ourselves on being one big happy family. That means we are always available to talk; creating an atmosphere of openness and honesty.

All of the adults working at School are suitably trained and up to date with the latest legal requirements. Our Executive Principal and Head of School are our Designated Safeguarding Leads, assisted and deputised for by our Assistant Head. You can raise any matters with them and they will be dealt with straight away. You can book confidential meetings with them via Reception.

Likewise, if something has or is occurring outside of School that you think it would be useful for us to know about in order to support your child or children, please do let us know. All matters are dealt with confidentially.

Let’s talk about PANTS

The NSPCC’s ‘Pantosaurus’ campaign is a great way to talk to your children about ‘The Underwear Rule’ to help keep them safe. We use it in School so you will probably hear the children singing the song at home! Visit the dedicated NSPCC pages for more information by clicking the button.

Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership

Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership is a joint effort between the local authority, health practitioners from the NHS and the West Yorkshire Police. It’s a great place to keep up to date with news as well as to go to for advice. The buttons take you to the relevant pages.
