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

We use a piece of Software called CPOMS (Child Protection Online Management System) to robustly record, track, and manage concerns about our children. This may include concerns raised by members of staff, pupils, parents, community members, as well as any disclosures made by children. Safeguarding information about our children is shared with staff and wider agencies on a need to know basis as part of our duty of care to pupils. We always pass any safeguarding records to ongoing schools.

The school’s child protection policy is available for download in the Resources Area of this page.
