Joanna Colledge is the Designated Safeguarding Lead. Jen Middleton and Rachel Clements will deputise in her absence.

Ingleton Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Ingleton Primary School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents.

This policy outlines our Child Protection procedures. For your convenience we have included this document as an attachment which you may download or print out.
