Part of Bronte Academy Trust


At Oakworth Primary School, we take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. This means that we ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children. It also means that we have staff members who are specifically trained and nominated as Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) within school. These staff are currently: Mrs Jenni Mayo (Headteacher),  Mr James Travers (Assistant Headteacher) , Miss Danielle Blott (Assistant Headteacher) and Miss Samantha Layfield (Assistant Headteacher).
The school also follows Bradford Child Protection Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board local guidance and has systems in place to share concerns regarding children’s welfare with our DSLs, with parents and with relevant external agencies. Part of our legal duty to safeguard children, may also include us needing to consult specifically with, and take advice from, the Police or Children’s Social Care, should the need arise.
By working closely together as a staff and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we offer a safe learning environment for all our children.
