Safeguarding at Park Road

"Safeguarding is everyone’s business – So never ever do nothing.”

(A combination of two quotes by Lord Laming following the death of Victoria Climbie)

Park Road Junior Infant and Nursery School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All Kirklees schools, including Park Road School, follow the Kirklees Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Duty and Assessment and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Kirklees Safeguarding Children Procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s safeguarding policy is available on the website and on request at the school office.

All staff appointed to Park Road School are subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check. 

All staff have been trained in Safeguarding procedures.  The training includes understanding what is meant by: physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and neglect and how to recognise signs of the above. Staff have also been trained in what to do if they suspect abuse, or if abuse is disclosed to them. All disclosure or suspicions of abuse are reported to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Julie Hampson. In her absence, referrals are made to Mrs Lucy Kingswell, Mrs Thompson, Mrs Rebecca Jackson, Beth Foley or Mrs Josey Kutny who are the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.

Operation Encompass Safeguarding Statement

Our school is part of Operation Encompass. This is a police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.

Operation Encompass means that the Education Safeguarding Service will share information about Domestic Abuse incidents with our school PRIOR to the start of the next school day when the police have been called to a domestic incident.

Once DSL has attended at an Operation Encompass briefing, they will cascade the principles of Operation Encompass to all DDSL’s.

Our parents are fully aware that we are an Operation Encompass school.

The Operation Encompass information is stored in line with all other confidential safeguarding and child protection information.

The DSL has also led training for all school staff and Governors about Operation Encompass, the prevalence of Domestic Abuse and the impact of this abuse on children. We have also discussed how we can support our children following the Operation Encompass notification.

We are aware that we must do nothing that puts the child/ren or the non-abusing adult at risk.

The Safeguarding Governor will report on Operation Encompass in the termly report to Governors. All information is anonymised for these reports.
