Safeguarding at Central

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children. We are always here to help.

If you are concerned about a child or a child makes a disclosure to you, please contact a member of the safeguarding team immediately. Any concerns that you have regarding the welfare of any child or adult working within Wath Central Primary must be recorded and reported immediately in line with the school’s Safeguarding Policy.

We all have a statutory duty to “safeguard and promote the welfare of children”.  If you have any concerns about the health and safety of a child at this education setting or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of staff immediately.  Some issues e.g. a child’s appearance, hygiene, general behaviour, can be shared with any teacher or member of support staff in this setting.  Do not worry that you may be reporting small matters – we would rather that you tell us things which turn out to be small than miss a worrying situation.  However, if you think the matter is very serious and may be related to a child protection concern, e.g. physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect, you must talk to one of the safeguarding team immediately.
