‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.’

Keeping Children Safe in Education

Poppleton Road Primary School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors.  We promote a climate where students and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

We follow the DfE guidance from:
