Safeguarding Children

Covid-19 School Safeguarding Policy Addendum 09/09/2020

Barwic Parade Community Primary School has safeguarding and child protection procedures that incorporate Government policy and legislation. The Designated Safeguarding Officer is Miss Sarah Dixon, Headteacher. 


All staff are trained in basic awareness in child protection through North Yorkshire's Safeguarding Children's Board.


Barwic Parade Community Primary School provides policy and guidance, which sets out clear guidelines and expectations in the school with regards to appropriate relationships between all staff and children. We provide a very sensitive and professional setting in which the children will be given full emotional support without it being detrimental to their safety and well-being. 


All staff are aware of their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting their welfare of our pupils.

We have a duty of care and therefore a responsibility to pass on any child protection and safeguarding concerns to Children's Social Care Services. A copy of our safeguarding policy can be found in our Policies section of this website.


If you have any child protection or safeguarding concerns please contact the school and ask to speak to Miss Dixon.

The NYCC Prevention Team

North Yorkshire County Council have launched a new children and families prevention service that brings together a range of preventative work previously undertaken by seperate services. There is now a single service which:


  • Operates seamlessley throughout the 0-19 age range;
  • Eliminates duplication, unnecessary and unhelpful transitions for families;
  • Has a new way to provide services, including a greater capacity to provide early help in a more targeted way to children, young people and families.
