Safeguarding is Everybody’s Responsibility

Safeguarding is the process of protecting children from abuse or neglect. Preventing impairment of their health and development. Ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully.  

All those working at Hayton Primary School will contribute to the safeguarding and protection of the welfare of a child in need by: 

  • protecting children from maltreatment 
  • preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development 
  • ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care 
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes. 

Safeguarding is a very high priority at Hayton Primary School. We demonstrate this ethos by ensuring that all our staff and governors receive annual training from Educare in Safeguarding at Level 1. 

The Designated Lead (DSL) and the Designated Deputies (DDSL) for Safeguarding at our school also have undertaken training up to Level 3 standard through either Safe Haven Consulting or Kym Allen Health & Safety.
