Our Responsibilities

At Pudsey Bolton Royd Primary School, we are committed to the safety and well-being of all the children in our care. We are fully aware of our roles and responsibilities with regard to safeguarding children. School follows the statutory guidance for schools and colleges on safeguarding children and safer recruitment called ‘Keeping Children Safe In Education’ which you can find here. It sets out the legal duties we must follow to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people under the age of 18 in schools and colleges.

Through a safer recruitment policy, established safeguarding procedures and regular staff and governor training, we ensure that the children attending our school are kept safe, happy and healthy.

We all have a duty to safeguard children, so if you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child at Bolton Royd, please speak to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads.

Safeguarding Updates

We want to support our parents with advice about keeping their children safe at home. The Child Accident Prevention Trust have some advice about how to prevent accidents in the home or while out and about and you can find that by clicking here.

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. We have produced a pamphlet which helps parents know how they can help:
