Safe Guarding

Wykebeck Primary School recognises that safeguarding encompasses the duties of child protection and promoting the rights and welfare of children. As such, it is:

  • Everyone’s responsibility to safeguard children and provide a safe environment in which children can learn.
  • All school and college staff should be prepared to identify children who may benefit from Early Help.
  • All professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. (KCSiE 2016)


And we believe:


  • Schools can contribute to the prevention of abuse.

  • All children have the right to be protected from harm.

  • Children need support that matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse.



    Wykebeck Primary School will fulfil local and national responsibilities as laid out in the following documents:-
