At Croxby Primary, we view the safeguarding of our children to be of paramount importance and believe that all our children have the right to be safe, happy and learn. Everyone who works in, volunteers at or visits our academy has a responsibility to make this happen.

We will ensure that;

  • The welfare of all of our children remains paramount at all times.
  • All suspicions and concerns raised regarding safeguarding matters will be taken seriously and our response will be swift and appropriate.
  • All adults working or volunteering at our academy will be made aware of our academy’s safeguarding arrangements and the importance of reporting any concerns to the appropriate people.
