Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility
If you have any concerns or worries about a child please contact a member of school staff.
At Farnley Tyas First School, our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Wagstaff.
In her absence, we have three Deputy DSLs: Mrs Kitchen, Mrs Capner and Mr Mosley.
These are the key people in school to contact should you have any concerns or worries; however, all members of staff are trained to support you should you need to approach them.
Please also take a look at our e-safety page and view our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies on our policies page. You may also find the links below useful should you have any concerns or require help and support.
Operation Encompass Safeguarding Statement
Our school is part of Operation Encompass. This is a police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.
Operation Encompass means that the Education Safeguarding Service will share information about Domestic Abuse incidents with our school PRIOR to the start of the next school day when the police have been called to a domestic incident.
Once DSL has attended at an Operation Encompass briefing, they will cascade the principles of Operation Encompass to all DDSL’s.
Our parents are fully aware that we are an Operation Encompass school.
The Operation Encompass information is stored in line with all other confidential safeguarding and child protection information.
The DSL has also led training for all school staff and Governors about Operation Encompass, the prevalence of Domestic Abuse and the impact of this abuse on children. We have also discussed how we can support our children following the Operation Encompass notification.
We are aware that we must do nothing that puts the child/ren or the non-abusing adult at risk.
