Safeguarding is a priority at Ling Bob J, I & N School and we have several policies in place to help to keep our children safe, such as; Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy, Health & Safety Policy, Medical Needs Policy, Behaviour Policy and an Anti-Bullying Policy.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and all staff working in school receive regular training and are familiar with the statutory guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2020). Training includes a range of safeguarding issues, including the Prevent strategy to protect children from radicalisation and extremism, child sexual exploitation and FGM.
If you are worried about the welfare of a child who attends Ling Bob School, please speak to a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). Our Senior DSL is Jeanette Bolton. If you have concerns about a child being at risk of harm, you can also contact Calderdale’s Multi Agency Screening team on 01422 393336.
The Early Intervention Team here at Calderdale has put together this video to educate young people on the dangers that they face during the COVID-19 pandemic.
