At Ryecroft Primary Academy, we have created a culture where safeguarding is given the highest priority and pupils are involved in creating a safe environment. Staff are vigilant and trained to identify when a child might be at risk and report their concerns.

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 share our concerns with parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that by doing so, we would be putting a child at risk.

We actively support the government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding and Prevent Lead is Mr Wood. Mrs Tolan and Mr Kelsey are our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.

We have a number of policies in place that contribute to safeguarding at Ryecroft which can be viewed on request.
