Safeguarding

Meet the Safeguarding Team

The school is a key front-line player, working in partnership with other children’s services, and therefore staff should always be mindful of local policies and procedures, that must be followed, and which are under the direction of the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board and statutory requirements.

At Fishergate Primary School, we recognise that:

• The welfare of the child is paramount

• All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse

• Working in partnership with children, young people and their parents, carers and other agencies, is essential in promoting young people’s welfareFishergate School Safeguarding Policy

We work under the guidance of the Department for Education. For further information please see  ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education – Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges’ and the School Policies page.

As part of the safeguarding support from the Local Authority, Hilary and Jackie have been allocated as Fishergate School’s link workers. They will support staff and parents with safeguarding needs and concerns whilst also offering advice and signposting to other agencies and organisations.
