Safeguarding & Child Protection

Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  This means that we have Safeguarding and Child Protection policies and procedures in place, which we refer to in our Parent Handbook.  All staff, including our volunteers and supply staff, must ensure that they are aware of our procedures.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child’s best interests or a child is at significant risk or in immediate danger.

Our school safeguarding governor is Chris Godwin.


Should you have any concerns about the welfare of a child, you can speak to the following staff members at school: 

Contactable at - 01535 642309 or contact a DSL via office.oakworth@bronteacademytrust.org.uk


Alternatively, members of the public can contact Children's Social Care freephone on 0800 9530966. You can also make anonymous referrals through the NSPCC website.


If a child is at risk of immediate harm, you should always dial 999
