A warm welcome to Catcliffe Primary School.

Catcliffe Primary School has a strong learning community which is built upon trust, mutual respect and unity. We are an inclusive school: we value our learners and believe that every child is unique, we recognise and embrace the role that everyone has in creating the best possible learning environment.

At our school, we endeavour to achieve high standards in all that we do. We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to be the very best that they can be and we aim to provide children with the nurture, knowledge, inspiration and varied experiences in order to be so.

Our curriculum makes learning REAL! We prepare children for life beyond school by making the learning relevant to them and their lives. Our curriculum is engaging and sparks the imagination of young minds. We are ambitious in our approach to education and have created a curriculum that supports lifelong learning. We believe our forward-thinking approach is balanced nicely with traditional values that are rooted within our local setting and helps our children to understand their place, role and responsibilities in their community and the wider world.

We hope that you find our school website helpful and informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions, we would be delighted to share the work of the school with you and visits to see the amazing work of our school are encouraged and warmly welcomed.

Our commitment to Safeguarding

 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All Staff are employed subject to a DBS check and undergo Safeguarding training prior to starting their role. There is annual Safeguarding training for all staff.

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.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Safeguarding section of our website.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard using our secure online system CPOMS. The concern will also be reported to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day.

If a member of staff has concerns which relate to the actions or behaviour of another member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then this will be reported to one of the DSLs or Headteacher in confidence. If the concern relates to the headteacher this will be reported to the Trust. Concerns regarding members of staff may be reported to the LADO.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

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 Lead s (DSLs) shared below.

As a result of internal audit and DfE recommendations, the school has directly adopted the LA Safeguarding policy and any school specific information is contained within the safeguarding poster below.
