Safeguarding at CVPS

Cullingworth Village Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.

Please act quickly! You could make a difference!

If you think a child may be suffering neglect or abuse, it can be difficult knowing what to do. Your action is vital in making sure the child gets the help they need.

If you are ever concerned about the safety or well‐being of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) by contacting the school on: 01535 273839.

If you ever are concerned about a child out of school, please contact Bradford Children's Social Care Initial Contact Point on 01274 435600.
